Carne Ross was a government highflyer. A career diplomat who
believed Western Democracy could save us all. But working
inside the system he came to see its failures, deceits and ulterior
motives. He felt at first hand the corruption of power. After the
Iraq war Carne became disillusioned, quit his job and started
searching for answers. This film traces his journey across the
globe as he tries to find an answer to the question so many
people today are asking themselves – isn’t there a better way?
For Carne there is. Anarchism offers a solution to the brutalities of
Capitalism and the dishonesties of Democracy. It offers a world
where people have control over their own lives. From the
protesters of Occupy Wall Street, to an anarchist collective in
Spain, to Noam Chomsky, the grand old man of anarchism himself,
Carne finds people who are putting the theory into practice. His
journey eventually takes him to one of the most dangerous places
on earth – Syria, eight kilometers from the front line with Isis,
where a remarkable anarchist state has risen phoenix like from
the flames.
A powerful film about one man’s epic journey from government
insider to anarchist.
