Film Synopsis
An Orlando woman uses her bicycle ride to work as a vehicle to explore fear and global warming. Shot in Orlando, Tampa, Sweden and Denmark, the film is a contemplative response to An Inconvenient Truth and provides a unique perspective on one person's attempt to reduce her carbon footprint and overcome fear. Her journey to the answer takes the audience on a humorous bike ride with a camera strapped to the handle bars. This film features a bicycle ride with the Mayor of Orlando and music by Danish jazz violin sensation Mads Tolling.

Film time: 66 min
