Synopsis

Documentary that takes viewers around the world to explore various traditions practiced in different cultures to mark major milestones of human life, such as birth, death, manhood, womanhood and marriage. The program reveals how a Marine Corps boot camp follows the same types of rituals as other societies to mark the passage of boy into manhood. For women, the program documents the modern "Goddess" movement, in which suburban women practice pagan rituals in veils and cloaks, honoring the milestones of puberty, motherhood and old age.
