Taboo

Taboo

Rituals and customs accepted in one culture may be thought of as downright bizarre in another. ``Taboo'' delves into that dichotomy, taking viewers across cultural borders to explore traditional beliefs and deliberate lifestyle choices, ranging from body modification and gender decisions to nudity and spiritual quests that test the limits of the human body.
