Im Reich des Regenwurms

der Boden unter unseren Füßen

How is soil created? What does it do for us? And why is it in danger? For a long time, society has paid little attention to the ground on which we walk, in which our plants grow, which literally feeds us. Time to take an intense look at and below the surface. This film accompanies an earthworm through its subterranean life cycle, resurfaces again and again and features scientists whose projects are dedicated to the protection of the soil.
