What makes a human a human? Is it divine creator, genetics or do we learn our humanity from the culture around us? This nature/nurture debate is forcefully worked through in Werner Herzog's retelling of the true story of Kaspar Hauser, a young man who spent the first 20 years of his life chained up in a cellar, and then found himself thrust into 19th-century society. How would someone who's developed without outside influences behave - like a wild animal or a noble innocent? This fascinating drama explores an eternal riddle.
