A journey along a remote Alaskan coast—in search of garbage. The world shrinks as we all become connected through our litter, yet somehow we are still severed from the problem we’ve created, killing the life that depends on the sea. Now, in one of the most breathtaking places on the planet, a unique scientific expedition brings the problem into perspective. An international team of renowned artists and scientists ventures north attempting to change the way we view plastic and ocean trash. Their battleground is not a prosaic academic textbook or quiet lecture hall, but high seas adventure and vivid and stirring artistic expression.
