As the uptight Dr. Oscar von Shtein begins his thrilling FRED Talk on the Classics, he is interrupted by the mysterious Puru. From communal Roman toilets to the Queen who banished the bowel movement, The Puru unearths the origins of our dis-ease and exposes how current sanitary practices threaten our health, environment, and 40% of the world still living without safe toilets. But when The Puru disappears, can Oscar save the day and face his shit before it hits the fan?
