The documentary is a compilation of discussions with the Director and Creator of KA, Robert Lepage, and other creators, "behind the scenes" folks, and artists from the show. We get insight from Lepage as to how he came up with the vision of a show with inverted worlds and anti-gravity. We hear from Mark Fisher, Theatre and Set Designer, how the theater came together and how everyone worked to deliver a show performed not on a stage but in a void. We see the renovation of the KA Theater at the MGM Grand and get some insights as to its design and function. We see the moment the cast is introduced to the stage and get a glimpse of their excitement as they see it all come to life. We also see some of the particular safety measures and challenges this show has given the designers and how Cirque has come up with innovative solutions. Jonathan Deans, Sound Designer, speaks about how big a part sound plays in the production, and Holger Forterer, Interactive Projections Designer, speaks on the show's ambitious visual effects.
