How can we remember or envision animals that died out? The unique zoological collection of the Matin-Luther University in Halls (Saale) provides the option to look history and extinct animals in the (glass) eye.

The collection is still expanding. By following taxidermist and entomologist at work the film reveals the transformation of insects and mammals into becoming specimens for the zoological collection.
