Plot[edit]

The film is divided into five parts: Cosmos, Mind, Body, Heart and Soul. The film focuses on humanity’s inclination for apathy and empathy. It explores man’s dualistic relationships with each other and how we have all (human, animal or tree) come from the same root.[3]

Production[edit]

On June 26, 2013, Shaun Monson started a Kickstarter campaign to complete and market the film, with the goal of reaching "a minimum of $800,000 to complete post-production and release the film within a year", but the fundraising was unsuccessful.[5] Monson spent 6 years producing the film.[3]

The film is produced by Nation Earth and is Nation Earth's second feature-length film and is the second of a documentary trilogy which began in 2005 with the release of Earthlings.

The film was also recorded as an audiobook read by Monson. The audiobook is an unabridged version of the Unity script and is about 300 minutes long.[6]
