Unselfishness is the rule. Everything ants do is for their colony's good. This film explores the world of ant colonies. Dr. Edward O. Wilson argues that the instinctive behavior of ants, particularly their tendency to live in large colonies, have made it possible for ants to survive in most conditions. The program compares ant behavior with human social structures, and makes the case that human societies may not be as well organized as ant colonies.
