A journey across the globe to meet the often extraordinary people who can call themselves Guinness World Record holders. From Chandra Dangi, the world’s new smallest man to Sultan Kosen, the tallest; from Elaine Davidson, the world’s most pierced woman to Alain Robert, the French Spiderman, the book of Guinness World Records is alive with the extremes of human endeavour and provides a snapshot of the whole world. With records ranging from the super-human to the bizarre, none is less than fascinating and all of them hide a story of dedication, eccentricity, endurance or of the simply weird.
Made with exclusive access to Guinness World Records’ adjudicators who have the power to make people’s dreams come true, the film travels from Wolverhampton to Kathmandu, from Northampton to Qatar to explore the unique world of the superlative. Whatever our differences there’s one thing that unites us - our need for recognition. This entertaining and engrossing documentary tells the stories of the people behind the records and discovers what drives them to become Guinness World Record holders.
