Over the course of 60 years, two married entomologists traveled to more than 67 countries and quietly amassed the world’s largest private collection of insects, with more than 1 million specimens. But as they grapple with Parkinson’s in their twilight years, these two soulmates have decided to give their collection away. This humorous, poignant documentary explores the love of nature, the nature of Love, and what it means to devote oneself completely to both.
