A physical challenge that requires strength, willpower and perseverance. Crucial to his mission is his surfboard made from plastic litter. A prototype design that is necessary to tell the plastic pollution story but proofs very hard to finish on time. As the expedition unfolds the campaign is under pressure by the things he learns along the way.
A gripping movie that shows one man and the 1200 kilometer river Rhine as they cut their way through a variety of landscapes, past cities and industry. On the embankments he meets specialists and learns about the sources of the plastic pollution in the river. Plastic that will eventually flow out to sea, just like he will. If he is strong enough to finish the expedition.
