Film Synopsis

Over the course of 60 years, Lois and Charlie O’Brien traveled to more than 67 countries and quietly amassed the world’s largest private collection of insects — their trove counts more than one million specimens. And now, after decades of teaching, writing, research and the development of an almost-parental bond with their collection, these two soulmates have decided to give all their insects away. This humorous and poignant documentary explores the nature of love and the love of nature, and what it means to devote oneself completely to both.
