This journey has the potential to be the thread that joins all humanity together, not break us apart.

Science! The first to test for atmospheric plastic pollution at the Poles with innovative experiments from the Scripps Institute of Oceanography.

As the Trump administration pushes a decades-old political agenda, this film reminds us of the sacred connections between us, and the ways that a place can teach us how to live with respect and compassion.
