This riveting documentary odyssey is an authentic sweep of defiance that captures the very motto of environmental activists: think globally, act locally. The film follows Melati, an 18-year-old Indonesian girl and well-established activist against plastic pollution, who represents six other brave individuals that have defied complacency and inaction and decided to tackle the burning issues of a globalized world. These young activists endeavor to save lives and are committed to educating and edifying others. For them, impossible is nothing. They can still change the world so long as they have faith that their actions make a difference. This documentary work is a cultural artifact that effectively weaponizes activism, hope, and determination against the blatant ignorance of the masses. All with regard to what’s bigger than us.
