HOW KEVIN BACON CURED CANCER brings us a new view of the world, as we unfold the science behind the popular trivia game 'six degrees of Kevin Bacon'. Based on the idea that anyone on the planet can be connected in just a few steps of association, 'six-degrees of separation' was supposedly a myth. Through the film we discover it's at the heart of a major scientific breakthrough. HOW KEVIN BACON CURED CANCER is a thought-provoking examination of an amazing idea, that there might be a pervasive law which nature uses to organise itself.
