Each child is from a different culture: Ponijao is a little girl born into the Himba tribe in Namibia; Bayarjargal lives a nomadic life with his herder parents in Mongolia; Mari resides with her Japanese family in the high-rise heart of Tokyo; and Hattie dwells in hip San Francisco. As the film follows them concurrently, we see each one reach the common milestones of infancy — sitting up, crawling, eating solid foods, walking — while they discover the unique features of the place they have been born into. The result is an eloquent illustration of how all human beings are fundamentally the same, yet how our physical and cultural environment shapes us from the moment we emerge from the womb.
