‘We have everything we need right now to make it happen!’

Following his compelling experiment on himself in That Sugar Film (Generation 2015), Damon Gameau sets off on another journey in this entertaining yet profound documentary. Thinking of his little daughter's future, he undertakes to find out what life might look like in 20 years. All over the world, the enterprising filmmaker uncovers remarkable approaches and solutions in the fight against humanity's collective suicide through global warming. Numerous conversations and examples from the fields of renewable energy, transport and agriculture show that sustainable living is possible, while playful animated vignettes underpin Gameau's credo: we can effectively limit harmful CO2 emissions and create a more liveable world. It is all up to us.
