As the world spins into cataclysmic possibilities for our climate, hope springs from some of the most incredibly passionate and persevering young teens put to film in this utterly endearing and optimistic documentary. Following six dedicated youths from across the globe as they work tirelessly to find solutions for the horrible environmental dilemmas that plague their own backyards, veteran director Laura Nix trains her camera on these bright, exuberant kids as they prepare to bring their potentially Earth-saving inventions to compete at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). Visiting from Indonesia's Bangka Island; Bangalore, India; and from Hawaii to Mexico and beyond, these four groups represent a fraction of the world's kids determined to make coherent, lasting change when they convene in Los Angeles for the final contest. Nix's engaging and inspirational examination of charged youth does more than give hope for the future — it captures genuine progress in action.
