The cone shell, a peculiar shell equipped with poisonous gigs which can strike a fish dead in just a few seconds, fascinates scientists. Since we have discovered the complexity of the toxins, and their action on the body, in particular on pain transmission, numerous international laboratories have set on a quest for a promising medicine, which could revolutionize pain treatments, but also treatments of illnesses such as Alzheimer and Parkinson. This film will study the specificity and characteristics of this shell, in which scientists have put so much hope in.
