“Carne Ross was a career diplomat who believed western democracy could save us all. But after the Iraq war he became disillusioned and resigned. This film traces Carne’s worldwide quest to find a better way of doing things – from a farming collective in Spain, to Occupy Wall Street to Rojava in war-torn Syria – as he makes the epic journey from government insider to anarchist.”
