An ode to the vital reconciliation between Man and Nature, this film invites the viewer to reflect on the changes taking place on our planet, and the repercussions of these changes on future inhabitants. One by one, the stunning images reveal not only the beauty of the Earth, but also the impact we ourselves have made on our fragile planet.
