"This precious jewel of a film opens us to inner resources for accepting and responding to the inevitability of climate change. It accomplishes this with heart-wrenching beauty, by interweaving two stories: that of the filmmaker's mother facing her death by ALS, and that of our planet's people facing the realities of climate chaos. Each story brings exquisite teachings about how to tolerate impermanence and find grace in uncertainty. Each guides us to a dual capacity: how to see clearly what we cannot change and how to yet love and act for the sake of life. I want everyone I know and do not know to be refreshed, nourished and emboldened by This Dewdrop World."
