As part of an on-going international scientific debate, THE MYSTERY OF REMOTE ANCESTORS looks at the possible origins of the Chinese people. Starting with the discovery of 'Dragon Bone' over a hundred years ago, the Three Gorges region of China has yielded fascinating evidence of a long-gone past. Combining over a century of scientific study from a team of worldwide archaeologists and paleoanthropologists, this film focuses on the controversial findings of ancient human remains that date back over two million years. Live action and CG re-enactments illustrate the lives of these ancient humans, while archival and contemporary footage detail recent excavation findings. Listen to eyewitness accounts and interviews of leading scientists as they offer their own conclusions about the meaning of these mysterious remains.
