With over a billion cars worldwide, climate change and never-ending gridlock are a grim reality, but can we change our cities? Director Fredrik Gertten (Big Boys Gone Bananas!*) investigates the daily drama of traffic worldwide and the bicycle as a tool for change. Travelling from São Paulo to Los Angeles, Toronto, where cyclists fight daily for their right to the road, to Copenhagen, where 40 per cent of the population commutes by bike, Gertten meets activists and thinkers who are working for revolutionary changes.

In English, Portuguese, Spanish, with English subtitles.
