The Story of Us with Morgan FreemanThe Story of Us with Morgan Freeman
Nat Geo, 2017 | Documentary | ► Trailer

Why do some people rise to power and others do not? Why do we fall in love - not just with romantic partners but with friends and strangers? How has our need to share beliefs built human culture? National Geographic will seek to answer these big questions and many more. At a time when global events seem to be driving cultures apart, The Story of Us aims to reveal the common humanity that lies inside each one of us. Each of the six hourlong episodes will explore a single fundamental force or topic: freedom, peace, love, social division, power and rebellion. Along the way Freeman meets and speaks with powerful world leaders, ordinary people with extraordinary stories and everyone in between.
