Climate change is the most immediate and important issue we're facing right now. It's vital that we change the conversation from one of silence and doubt to one of 'what can we do to solve this problem?' Films have the power to touch people in a way that science and data can't, so we feel artists need to be joining this discussion and shaping this discussion now, before it's too late.
Our film is attempting to do so by reminding our audience that, at the very core, life itself is a miracle, something precious and amazing, and something to be cared for. It's also attempting to show what climate change can do to people on a personal and practical level, how global warming has the potential to drastically change how we all will be able to live in the future. We hope to inspire a seed of thought, a seed of inspiration in the direction of positive change.
