"Belonging" is a scientific and spiritual journey into humanity's footprint on Earth. It is also a plea in favor or reduction and conservation. The film opens with observing the consequences of climate change in the Arctic. However, testimonies and observations rapidly indicate that it is not as much climate change which is threatening the Inuit culture and identity but rather the irresponsible use and abuse of high energy technologies. The film continues by observing that the same reality is affecting the rest of the world, even if we don't realize any longer that we are abusing energy and resources. Combining voices from science and spirituality, the film make a case in favor of reducing lifestyles and changing attitudes, from careless, selfish greed to respect for our planet, its people and its many ecosystems.
