Summary

Environmentally friendly electric cars, sustainably produced food products, fair production processes: Hurray! If everything the corporations tell us is true, we can save the world through our purchasing decisions alone! A popular and dangerous lie.
In his new documentary film, Werner Boote (Plastic Planet, Everything Under Control) shows us, together with environmental expert Kathrin Hartmann, how we can protect ourselves.
