Trailer trailer



Learn about history through visiting five separate time periods. Through parody, the Stone Age is visualized as humans learn how to reproduce and create music, but with some awful side effects. Moses appears as you learn about the Ten Commandments in the Old Testament. It appears there was more than ten lines that God wanted to convey. Drop in on the Roman Empire and learn about eunuchs, armies and marijuana as you follow a philosopher, Cornicus, around the great city of Rome. Visit the tortuous period known as the Spanish Inquisition. A song-and-dance livens up the room of prisoners. The French Revolution follows the King and his identical servant as the war descends on the perfect life in the palace. With so many parts to history, each time period comes alive through unique perspectives.
