The description is correct. This DVD explores differences and similarities of the modern human and our not-so-distant cousins the Neanderthals. The DVD explores several theories for why and how the Neanderthal species became extinct when Cro-Magnons became the more obviously dominant species. I found the movies to be very unbiased, showing all of the different sides of the theories while creating a very realistic dramatization of the likely events that took place between the species of man. A very educational DVD.
