No Impact Man
A newly self-proclaimed environmentalist who could no long avoid pointing the finger at himself, Colin leaves behind his liberal complacency for a vow to make as little environmental impact as possible. No more automated transportation, no more electricity, no more non-local food, no more material consumption… no problem.
That is, until his espresso-guzzling, retail-worshipping wife Michelle and their two-year-old daughter are dragged into the fray. What began as one man’s environmental experiemnt quickly becomes an experiment in how much one woman is willing to sacrifice for her husband’s dreams.
The film provides both a front row seat into the experiment that became a national fascination and media sensation in the US, and a behind the scenes look at the marital challenges that result from Colin’s and Michelle’s radical lifestyle change.
