Two old friends, Joe and Jonathan, have a reunion at an outdoor cafe. Their conversation reveals that Joe has just gotten out of prison several years early; he was there for some sort of monkey-wrenching crime done as part of an underground 'eco-warrior' group Joe and Jonathan founded back in the day. Meanwhile, the group has abandoned the strategy of trying to compel reform through the kind of direct action that landed Joe in prison and is moving onto an off the grid compound where they plan to blaze their own trail through the wreckage of modern society. How did they pull this off? Perfect timing.
