The Darwin theory suggests that we evolved from animals, particularly apes. According to Charles Darwin theory of biological evolution, all species of organisms arise and develop through natural selection of small, inherited variations that increase the individual’s ability to compete, survive, and reproduce.

This theory is one of the two theories on how humans populated Earth. The other is the religious one.

But in this documentary, we have another proof of Darwinism.

We learn about life through playing games as children. This ability to play games enables us to deveop into well-coordinated and adaptable social individuals.

And we are not alone in learning through games. Animals play as well. Why do animals indulge in play? What are the functions of these energy draining activities?

This documentary explores the reason why animals play. And in the end, you will see they are not much different than us.
