In this film, spectacular computer-generated images transport us inside a living cell. We follow a hormone as it passes through the cell membrane and cytoplasm, and enters the nucleus where we see the magnificent ballet of mitosis, the replication of DNA and the separation of chromosomes to form two daughter cells. A lively narrative text and original music accompany the images.

"The remarkable graphics really bring home in detail the large number of molecular processes and gadgets responsible for the behavior of a cell, including DNA replication and cellular division. Astonishing!" -- Francis Crick, The Salk Institute for Biological Studies
