In a single day in a single street, with the DNA of a couple hundred people at random, National Geographic Channel intends to follow the ancient traces of humanity.

Narrated by Kevin Bacon, the human family tree moves to one of the most diverse corners of the world – Queens, NY – to demonstrate how every ordinary share ancestors embarked on very different journeys.

Regardless of race, nationality or religion, all of us can trace our origins back to ancient Cradle of Humankind, East Africa. What made our collective journey seems, and where to take your specific ancestors?

At what point in our past we first crossed with supposed aliens living in our neighborhood? Now, in the human family tree, the people of this quintessential American melting pot will find that their connections are much deeper than a common postal code.
