In December 2008, Tim DeChristopher, climate activist, started something big. What began as a singular act of civil disobedience at a BLM auction in Salt Lake City, Utah, has since become part of uprisings the world over. When students from Finding the Good HS Semester interviewed Tim at Wild and Scenic in 2009, 2010 and 2011, they never dreamed they would travel to Utah for his trial, or begin a friendship that could penetrate prison walls. This film tells the story of one person standing up for truth and the change that can come from courageous action. Includes current updates.
