What are human beings feeling in the face of a changing environment?
The Earth and humanity are inextricably entwined, and a balanced relationship with it is crucial to our physical and emotional well-being. Any disruption in this relationship can cause negative emotions leading to frustration which may also lead to higher pollution on our part.

The series identifies the collective paradox of being aware of the environmental asphyxia that plastic waste creates, yet being massively dependent on this material as a society.
