This documentary explores the role diagrams played in shaping two critical moments in history: Sir Isaac Newton's study of light and color and Florence Nightingale's work bringing the autrocities of the Crimean war to light. In his prism experiment, Sir Isaac Newton used a graph to show the relationship between refraction of light and color(s). The second innovation covered in this film is the push for health reform that was characterized by Florence Nightingale's famous Rose Diagram.
