The theme of the film is the freedom that mobility creates for mankind. The film includes images from around the world, showing how each society, whatever its stage of technological development, has its own leading edge, its own state-of-the-art in transportation. Whether it be the Concorde or the Inuit sleigh, the film demonstrates that man’s drive for constant improvement, innovation and refinement of transportation and communication is motivated by curiosity, necessity and the desire for a better life.
