"Stan Rushworth, a Native American Elder, brings an especially enlightening viewpoint to these questions. It becomes clear that climate change is going to ruin our way of life but this then opens up a whole new set of questions: How did we get here? How do we choose to live and what actions make sense at this time?"
"The people interviewed in the documentary, all highly regarded and well-known spokespeople on the perspective, argue it's too late to stop catastrophic climate change but in no way too late to regain a renewed life-giving relationship with our world."
