Erratic behavior of olive baboons in Ghana is linked to human overfishing of the world's oceans.

It brings into focus the realization that the decisions we make today will affect all life on Earth for years to come. Actor-writer-director Edward Norton hosts six eye-opening episodes, each uncovering explanations behind some of today's most puzzling environmental changes.
