All societies are based on the idea of a social contract. We are told that if we work hard, if we treat others with respect, if we play according to the rules, we will be rewarded. But then there's the rule breakers. Those who use tax havens and make profits without returning to society. Breaking Social analyses the global patterns of cleptocracy and extractivism. An investigative journalist murdered in Malta. A river without water in Chile. When people reach a turning point, they begin to organize and protest. We will see those who are already fighting on the fronts of social upheaval around the world. The film explores the possibilities of overcoming injustice and corruption. A film about the reimagining of the building blocks of our societies and the ignition of seeds of hope that live within each of us.
