In 1971, a group of friends sail into a nuclear test zone and their protest captures the world’s imagination, giving birth to Greenpeace and defining the modern green movement. Media-savvy from the beginning, these pioneers captured their seat-of-the-pants activist adventures on 16mm film. From this vivid archive Jerry Rothwell has created a thrilling, sometimes terrifying film. When youthful energy comes up against the complexities of a growing organization, and idealism meets compromise, the group finds their battle to save the planet also forces them to fight each other.
