Two communities on different sides of the world, linked by a new emissions market find similarities and differences in their struggles. One community in Brasil faces the grave effects of eucalyptus monoculture in a rural area. The company, Plantar, has tried three times to enter the Clean Development Mechanism of the Kyoto Protocol via the World Bank. The other community lives next to the largest oil refinery in Scotland owned by BP which is already invested in the World Bank Prototype Carbon Fund. Through the use of community video training the two communities go through a remarkable process of sharing their own video letters in order to understand the impacts on both sides of the world.

In English and Portuguese with English, Portuguese, and Spanish subtitles.
