What’s behind the start, success and slip-ups of one of today’s most visible climate movements? The film tracks Extinction Rebellion’s controversial steps, also revealing the flaws that gnaw away at the initial zeal for fighting for a common goal.
In 2019, when Extinction Rebellion blocked London's main roads in the name of protecting the climate, very few thought their resolve would force the British government to act against climate collapse. The movement, now with supporters and autonomous branches across the world (including the Czech Republic), acts on the principle of civil disobedience and non-violent resistance. The film sheds light on how this type of activism works and on the British government’s reaction. It also uses the story of Roger Hallam, one of the movement’s founders, and his daughter, in order to show how deep commitment to a cause can overflow into an activist’s personal life.
