L’ex vice-président Al Gore poursuit infatigablement son combat en voyageant autour du monde pour former une armée de défenseurs du climat et exercer son influence sur la politique climatique internationale. Les caméras le suivent en coulisse, saisissent des moments publics et privés, drôles et émouvants : alors que les enjeux n’ont jamais été aussi importants, il défend l’idée que les périls du changement climatique peuvent être surmontés par l’ingéniosité et la passion des hommes.
