How can we live sustainable? Three people are dealing with this question. Felix is experimenting with clay as a building material. Sanaz has her own fashion label for which she uses vegan and recycled fabrics. Dominik works on a biodynamic farm, but quickly realizes that he can achieve more with political commitment. 
The film crew also looks for ways to produce their film sustainably.
They produce their own electricity with bicycles and solar panels, pay attention to sustainable nutrition and move around by cargo bike.
Together they overcome resistance and show that change is possible.
