In 2015, forest fires in Indonesia put more carbon into the atmosphere than Europe’s annual carbon footprint. In the two years that followed, Wally Tham and his team worked with local young people to design and build Indonesia’s first functioning haze shelter. This inspiring documentary captures a victory for grassroots activism.
