This is a film exposing the alternatives to the government's austerity measures; it's about the positive; it's about revealing the many options we actually have at a time when we're being told there are no alternatives. There is a budding movement gathering fantastic momentum, with an incredibly diverse cross section of people involved. This is my chance to pay respect to those people and their ideas.
My hope is that this film will help to inspire you to get up and get involved in this movement for the alternatives... There is so much you can do
