Everyday we are reminded of another weather disaster.

Raging wildfires, severe droughts, rising sea levels and killer heat waves are all the repercussions of humanity’s over-abundance.

But what prevents us from doing something about it?

12th Hour delves deep into these questions from a psychological point of view, making us confront the fact that we are our own worst enemy. Insightful, eye-opening, and filled with breathtaking images of our fragile planet – this film reminds us that there is no time to waste: we are now well into our 12th Hour.
