The climate crisis is changing everything, and humanity finds itself at a crossroads.


Unprecedented wildfires, floods and droughts rage across the planet; millions rise for radical climate action; and still, governments continue to prioritize short-term profits over everyone’s future.

Will our species continue our current trajectory towards extinction or will we enter into a synergistic cooperation with Earth? 

This documentary will invite us to make sense of the climate crisis as a moment of possibility for regeneration and systemic change. We go on a journey to discover how a renewed relationship to water and each other can enable us to regenerate damaged ecosystems and and heal trauma, in the face of a radically changing world. We explore how healing love and restoring the broken relations between one another and healing our broken relation with the Earth are mutually interdependent.


Featuring stories of Indigenous elders and community leaders, regenerative design experts

and activists, we learn about:

  • The perspectives of youth in these times struggling with the climate crisis

  • Traditional ecological knowledge and indigenous wisdom

  • Power-over vs power-with 

  • The historical (and continuous) arc of colonialism and genocide as a cause of global crises, and perspectives on collective trauma

  • Restoring complete water cycles

  • Water protection movements & global solidarity

  • How community building is a response to crises and a necessity for systemic change and for the healing of love with each other and the planet


The climate crisis could be an opportunity for a collective initiation into a more mature relation with Earth and all fellow beings.

By confronting the status quo of apathy, building societies of solidarity and care, and restoring healthy water, we can create the world our hearts are longing for.

Illustration & Animation

Art has the power to reach our hearts beyond opinion – it can reach a place within us, where we share true compassion, care and love for our planet.

Throughout this documentary we use animated illustrations to show the beauty of the intact water cycle, its widespread degradation, and ultimately, the possibility of regeneration.

We have also produced a 12 minute stand-alone animation that is accessible content for children & youth that will be released during our distribution phase.

the impact

With this documentary, we want to contribute to reframing the conversation around climate:

  • By expanding the demands of climate agreements from exclusively focusing on carbon emissions to include and acknowledge the intricate relationship between ecosystems, water cycles and carbon - and promoting the continuum of global water restoration responses. We invite everyone who views this film to join the many movements of water & earth protectors, community builders, and system changers.

  • With the animation, we will inspire the youth of today to imagine a healed planet and a loving humanity, because we have to imagine it for it to become a reality. We need youth to be empowered, and movements to keep building, even in the face of incredible uncertainty about the future of our home. We also intend to transform the animation into a children's book.

  • We hope to adjust the audience's gaze from seeking technical solutions to healing our broken relationship with the Earth, ourselves and each other. Through understanding the legacy of trauma embedded in patriarchy, colonialism, and capitalism we can re-learn how to live in community, as it is a necessary condition to our surviving and thriving together.​

  • During the distribution phase, we will offer this film as a gift. That means for free! We will invite you to gift back to us via donation and share opportunities to gift forward.
