Idiosyncratic Swiss-born artist Hans Witschi creates a metaphor for human birth and social development in "The Hand Book." Having shifted, during a career spanning nearly three decades, from purely representational and figurative work (his early canvases featured ruthlessly direct nude self portraits of Witschi, who has been severely crippled since birth).

This film documents his book- length photographic treatment of the hand itself in mainstream media as another form of birth and growth (the hand isolated eventually gives way to the "not-touched touch," or human interaction, and finally, to the mass communal gesture, or social man).
