For 1968, in the South of India, an utopian town develops and attracts inhabitants of all countries of the world. Auroville is an ambitious experience, a kind of laboratory from where will perhaps come out the ideal town of the future.
Founded by Mira Alfassa, known as "the Mother", companion of the yogi Sri Aurobindo, close to Pondichéry, Auroville is a space of dreams where the goal is "to realize Human Unity". Regrouping more than 1 800 persons of 40 different nationalities, this project is supported for his beginnings by the UNESCO and the Indian government.
Between the Caribbean sea and the Maya Mountains lies Toledo, known as
The Forgotten District of Belize, Central America. For the last 20 years, the Maya have been promoting their own ecotourism programme in order to protect their rainforest and traditions. Despite constant opposition from the government and the tourist industry, Margarita, Reyes, Chet and their friends remain strong and optimistic. This film is a tribute to their tireless efforts.
