Synopsis

Filmmaker Damon Gameau, who previously investigated the effects of an unhealthy diet in ‘That Sugar Film’, turns his attention to environmental issues of the modern world in his latest project. He sets out to address concerns around transport, energy, farming, education and more – looking for existing solutions around the world – aiming to set out his vision for a better tomorrow. Addressing the film to his young daughter who will be 25 by the year 2040, this is an insightful and thought-provoking piece with a hopeful message of how we can all make a positive difference to the world in both big ways and small.
