A Plastic Ocean is an ocean adventure feature shot across the planet over four years at more than 20 locations. The film follows ocean explorer and journalist Craig Leeson tracking wildlife, plastic rivers, and entire communities living among this toxic refuse. Champion free diver and new mother Tanya Streeter provides an intimate and tangible connection that plastic is becoming us. Scientists and experts examine the history, the sources and define the impacts of plastic pollution on the environment and health, and provide solutions to this crisis. A dramatic clarion call, the film demonstrates that the plastic pollution solution is one we can all be involved with. - David McGuire
