The film shares Mohamed Nasheed's pessimism, but it's also able to celebrate that wonderfully stubborn individual's constant need to fight on regardless of the eventual result.

Nasheed may be a small fish in a big geopolitical pond, but his enterprise and optimism are a welcome complement to eco doc doom and gloom.

The film emphasizes Mohamed Nasheed's recent stardom on the world stage, with the background note that he and others fought for 20 years to secure democracy in the Maldives.
