With Goethe's colour theory as a springboard, the film takes us on a journey through the universe of colours. We see how colours arise and 'behave', and how we perceive them and are influenced by them. Individual phenomena are explained in laboratory demonstrations, then shown in nature, in landscapes, changing seasons, fields of flowers, skies and bird's feathers.
