Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper on a journey deep inside the global revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet. From the Arab Spring to the European Summer, from the Occupy Movement to the global climate justice movement, a profound shift is taking place. Humanity is waking up to the fact that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is collapsing. Endless growth on a finite planet cannot be sustained. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound transformation. Millions of people are deciding that the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.

Woven throughout the moving, action-oriented backbone of the story is a deep exploration of the heart of the movement, the meaning of love and concrete examples of just what ‘another world’ could look like. The film features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability and empathy.
