You must see this beautifully filmed cautionary tour of plastic-glutted landfills, plastic-strewn deserts and into human arteries where plastic beads compete with platelets for space.

A must-see for anyone even remotely interested in the staggering health costs of plastic to humans and the planet itself.

Jumping breathlessly from one short segment to another, jetting from one corner of the world to another, the director aims to make up in breadth what he sacrifices in depth.

Boote's strong film will make you look at the floating plastic bag from American Beauty in a new, wholly suspicious way.
