With over 5 million members worldwide, many believe the Freemasons are a secret society that has long ruled the world. But do they? With numerous questions behind the true meanings that lie behind their ancient rituals, we go back to where the Freemasons started, 16th Century Scotland, to tell the story of the rapid global growth of the Scottish Freemasonry and its centrality to the Enlightenment of the 18th and 19th Centuries. We meet modern masons from across the world as well as the historians and archivists who have studied the origins and development of the Craft across the centuries. We also follow the current Grand Master of Scotland through his own installation and on to Washington DC to witness the installation of a new Grand Master Mason in North America.
