For this video I thought of sustainable versus finite resources and how it affects ordinary people like me. The factory closes and the exultant feeling of freedom and hope is very short lived. The need to find other employment soon becomes paramount. Behind all this is the knowledge that doing something sustainable and be paid for it remains out of reach.

Yet these glimpses of freedom persist in our lives and one day we may all be able to pursue what we all see as the right course of action.
