Starting with a water birth shot in slow motion and featuring a stunning graphics sequence that goes inside the chambers of the heart, this program focuses on the countless small miracles the human body performs minute by minute in order to stay alive. Viewers learn how an infant's first breath leads to a rewiring of its entire circulatory system - and meet a diver who can hold his breath for up to nine minutes, a man who can swim in glacial lakes so cold they would kill a normal person, and a woman who has lived on a diet of crackers for ten years. The video also demonstrates what happens when the body finally fails.
