The whole world is talking about the environment, but frequently fails to listen to nature itself. Peter Wohlleben has changed all that. When he published his book THE HIDDEN LIFE OF TREES in 2015, he stormed all the bestseller charts overnight. Wohlleben tells us in an entertaining and enlightening fashion about the solidarity and cohesion of the trees. He brings us closer to these astounding living entities. In this documentary, Wohlleben travels to Sweden to see the oldest tree in the world; he visits businesses in Vancouver that are looking for a new approach to how to treat the woods; he sides with the Hambach Forest demonstrators. Because he knows that the human race can only survive if the woods are healthy – and that the eleventh hour is already upon us.
