The movie tells the story of Tim DeChristopher and his stunning act of civil disobedience in a time of global climate chaos. On December 19, 2008, DeChristopher derailed the Bush administration's last minute, widely disputed Federal Bureau of Land Management Oil and Gas lease auction, acting to safeguard thousands of acres of Utah land. Bidding $1.7 million,Tim won 22,000 acres of land with no intention to pay or drill. For his disruption of the auction, he was indicted on two federal charges. This drew national attention to America's energy policy. The movie is also the story of the scientists, activists, writers, and movements that influence and support his actions.
