Every day, 93 million single-use straws are used in Indonesia. Together with other plastic waste, they end up in the ocean, break down into microplastics, are eaten by marine life, and end up on our plates for us to eat. The documentary is adapted from a series of films that the filmmakers took around the country to show Indonesians the magnitude of the problem they faced. Balinese vocalist Gede Robi has made the issue of plastic pollution his personal crusade. He has joined forces with Prigi Arisandi, a biologist and river guard from East Java who protests against waste plastic imports into Indonesia. Together they collect evidence about the extent of plastic pollution. They meet with experts, activists, and conduct research – including on themselves – to understand what the impact of plastic is on our environment and on our health. Later they join forces with Tiza Mafira, a young lawyer who has dedicated her career to lobbying public officials and the private sector to develop policies to address single-use plastic pollution.
