Steve McCurry was born with an urgent need to write his own destiny. In the late nineteen-seventies, he fled suburban Philadelphia with a one-way ticket to India. From that day on he has been traveling the world, capturing the history of humanity in photography.
McCurry is moved by an animal instinct, capable of capturing moments of beauty anywhere, even in tragedy. This is exactly what happened when he looked into the piercing eyes of Sharbat Gula, the “Afghan girl”, whose face became an icon when published on the cover of National Geographic magazine. But McCurry's pictures are also the safe-keepers of vanishing cultures for generations to come; from the crumbling temples of Angkor Wat to the ancient railway at the foot of the Taj Mahal; stunning and startling images that will be impossible to reproduce in the future.
 Acclaimed French director Denis Delestrac, who has known Steve McCurry for two decades, uncovers the photographer's private universe layer by layer. Observing him while at work in places such as India and Papua New Guinea, in his New York city studio or at home with his wife and newborn child in Arizona, we will meet the man behind the images in close-up. Exploring some of McCurry's best works with him, we discover they are all part of a quest to unite us in a single, monumental tale of human connection.
