We are headed for an elemental breakdown

In ELEMENTAL we meet three individuals who are united by their effort to stop the destruction of their environment. In India Rajendra Singh fights to stop the pollution of the holy river Ganges, in Canada Eriel Deranger struggles to halt a gigantic tar sand project, whereas in Australia, entrepreneur Jay Harmon claims to have invented a solution to the greatest ecological challenge of our time. By profiling such extraordinary dedicated people, ELEMENTAL inspires hope in the midst of its looming environmental catastrophe.
