Angela Sun brings us a film that might just change your life. The films focus - Man's most destructive invention. Plastic. Plastic. Oh my god, plastic... Plastic is the only substance known to man that never goes away. Think of every piece of plastic you've ever touched, from the toys you played with as children to the coffee lids you use every day. You threw them out, as I did, without a care in the world, not knowing that they're still out there and they're destroying our world. Millions of sea creatures die each year from the billions of tons of plastic in the ocean. And the rate of plastic production is INCREASING.

I beg you, if you have not already seen this movie, please watch it. It's well made, and worthwhile in every sense of the word. It will make your blood boil and head spin. I give this wonderfully made, terribly saddening, illuminating work 10 stars, and if I could give it 11 I would. It changed my life.
