The story of the unlikely group of scientists and politicians who, against the odds, created an unprecedented global agreement between the Earth's nations to defeat the deadly Hole in the Ozone layer. In the 1980s, the planet was in grave danger. Not from global warming but from a giant hole in the ozone layer, caused by the industrial chemicals, CFCs. Like today, people feared that their proindustry leaders would doom the planet…This film tells the remarkable story of how Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher – the unlikeliest eco-warriors in history – persuaded world leaders to save the planet.
