A fascination with the magical power of certain kinds of stones has been a feature of religion throughout the ages. Power and geology go hand in hand--stones are believed to be able to steal the power of people's souls, and also protect against evil. It's not surprising then that secret groups coveted stones, hoping to tap into that power. Using interviews with several experts, the film introduces us to how these societies worked with these elements. Cabalists, alchemists and meteorites are the main emphasis. If the subject interests you, this is a good introduction to experts Ahmed Osman, Robert Feather, Nick Pope, Patrice Chaplin and others, but you're not going to get too much depth in this short amount of time. Extensive footage from The Stone: No Soul Unturned, by the same director, is nicely used to illustrate. In fact, this documentary is a good companion piece to that fictional film--the theological underpinnings for the scary stuff. And in case you miss that point, afterwards is an extensive series of entertaining trailers and music videos for The Stone movie itself.
