In 2015, Pope Francis wrote Laudato Si’, an encyclical letter about the environmental crisis, to every single person in the world. The film tells the incredible story of the encyclical through the eyes of frontline leaders battling the ecological crisis across continents. A few years later, four voices that had gone unheard in global conversations were invited to an unprecedented dialogue with the Pope, to which they brought perspective and climate-change solutions from their respective countries. This documentary brings that conversation to a wider audience.
