This is a film about changing the world. The true-life adventure of Rob Stewart, this follow-up to his acclaimed documentary Sharkwater continues his remarkable journey, one that takes him through 15 countries over four years, where he discovers that it’s not only sharks that are in grave danger—it’s our oceans and, indeed, humanity itself.
In an effort to uncover the truth and find the secret to saving the ecosystems we depend on for survival, Stewart travels from the coral reefs in Papua New Guinea and deforestation in Madagascar to the largest and most destructive environmental project in history in Alberta, Canada, the Tar Sands. He reveals that all of our actions are interconnected and that environmental degradation, species loss, ocean acidification, pollution and food/water scarcity are reducing the Earth’s ability to house humans.
Meeting with the dedicated individuals and organizations working on solutions, Stewart finds encouragement and hope, pointing to the revolutions of the past and how we’ve evolved and changed our course in times of necessity. If people were informed about what was really going on, they would fight for their future—and the future of coming generations. From the evolution of our species to the revolution to save it, Stewart and his team take viewers on a groundbreaking mission into the greatest war ever waged. Startling, beautiful, and provocative, this is an inspiring call to action.
