My name is Lucy and I lived in Africa more than three million years ago, in the country we today call Ethiopia. I have become world famous because the scientists think I am a predecessor of the humans living on earth today.

One day a strange creature appears, it is Lucy from the future and she has an important mission. This is our story…

Actually we know very little about how the human became human. It’s like a big puzzle where almost all pieces are missing. Lucy deals with questions about evolution and the origins of mankind in a curios and playful way. Archeologists, half apes and time travelers take us on an amazing journey through time, several billion years in less than one hour.
