What if a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens set out to change the world ... and did?! Tia Chandler's status-conscious West Los Angeles lifestyle of SUVs, sterile corporate offices and shopping malls all changes the day her father is brutally murdered. Through her father's radical environmental books, Tia learns of the crisis around her, and is horrified that her lifestyle is contributing to it. At a gathering of environmental activists, Tia meets Ari Damek, a driven, purposeful negotiator who works with U.N. delegations for the Kyoto Protocol. From their first date, he speaks of Legacy: how the choices we make now will affect the generations to come. A story of love and heroism, "Legacy" integrates climate change forecasts and real solutions. It brings alive technologies and proposals from today's leading environmental scientists, economists and political thinkers. This is a tale of possibilities. Join Tia, Ari, their circle of activist friends, and their children on a 40 year journey, battling consumerism, coping with climate change and sea level rise, restoring wildlife ecosystems, wrestling national policies and international treaties, counteracting citizen apathy with both grassroots and top-down approaches. "Legacy" envisions the wonder that can be if we work together toward a more Sustainable future. Come join us.
