A group of ordinary people stop playing by the rules, embracing civil disobedience and sounding the alarm for climate breakdown. They are rebellious and they are flawed revealing the human drama at the heart of social change.Through a journey that starts with Extinction Rebellion (XR) in 2018, we meet environmental lawyer Farhana Yamin. Disillusioned after 25 years of UN negotiations, Farhana has decided it’s time to break the law.
