Description

A young man, Knox, encounters a young woman, Amara, walking on his family’s private property. Her witty report charms him into allowing her to continue her trespassing. Later, they meet again in a grocery store by chance, and she invites him over to dinner. Their conversation lingers on climate change and its potential impact on the future. In the face of global warming, is the planet’s future hopeful or bleak? Informative and slightly romantic, this film will resonate with viewers concerned about the environment.

With two good bottles of wine to lubricate their imaginations, the two tipsily exchange creative solutions to the greenhouse gas problem. One bizarre contrivance triggers an idea, a crazy leap of faith that subsequently gets set into motion. When they meet again, this time for a picnic on his property, the pendulum has begun to swing, and it will crash into their lives, and reshape the entire world. “We are going to be so happy.” Will they be?
