This is a film about a great vision – and the people turning it into reality: the rebels of our day. The future of world energy lies in the decentralized, clean supplies stemming from 100% renewable sources. That is the message of the film. Director Carl-A. Fechner takes his audience on a journey through a country where hundreds of thousands of people are fighting for the energy revolution. The film brings home to us why people in Ukraine fight with all they have left for a democratic energy system. POWER TO CHANGE is the story of transition to a future that dispenses with fossil fuels and nuclear energy – told through portraits of the people making it happen.
