This ambitious documentary/drama/animation hybrid stars Pete Postlethwaite as an archivist in the devastated world of the future, asking the question: "Why didn't we stop climate change when we still had the chance?" He looks back on footage of real people around the world in the years leading up to 2015 before runaway climate change took place.

It is a co-production between Franny Armstrong’s company ‘Spanner Films’ and Executive Producer John Battsek's (One Day In September) company ‘Passion Pictures’. The production was notable for its innovative crowd-funding financing model, as well as the Indie Screenings distribution system, which allows anyone anywhere to screen the film.

The film was released in 2009 and became one of the most talked-about films of the year. It also spawned the hugely-successful 10:10 campaign.
