Summary
Is being hit by lightning a random occurrence or a predestined event? Jennifer Baichwal explores the metaphysical effects of being struck by lightning with riveting personal stories from around the world. Captured is the harsh beauty of the skies and the lives of those who have been forever touched by their fury. In a neurological experiment, musician Fred Frith improvises with his guitar to demonstrate the ubiquity of electricity in our bodies and the universe
