Synopsis: What can one person do? What can a group of people do? What do we want to leave behind? We visit 13 projects in 13 different places where committed groups work for a vibrant future. A personal and poetic depiction of what it means to be fully human in the age of the Anthropocene. A co-production between Campfire Stories and the Swedish Transition Network.

More details: The film seeks to challenge the notion that what individuals and small groups of people do about the climate (and other societal crises) doesn’t really matter. It follows two storylines; one inward, where the filmmaker tries to make changes in his personal life – and one outward, where he travels around Sweden, visiting different change making projects.

Participants: Andy Frank, Anton Pettersson, Ylva Lundqvist-Fridh, Fredrik Lundqvist Fridh, Annelie Hilmerby, Dougald Hine, Maria Westerberg, Johannes Söderqvist, Thorsten Laxvik, Carolina Castillo, Melda Nahnfeldt, Pella Thiel, Christine Wamsler, Johan Örlander, Sandra Falkeborn, Nils Phillips, Axel Lindén, Greta Thunberg, Johan Rockström.
