This is the story of the Cuban people's hardship after they lost access to Soviet oil in the early 1990s. In their own words the people tell of their ingenuity and triumph over sudden adversity – through co-operation, conservation and community. It is a model of how to create a low-energy society using permaculture, transforming fossil-fuel intensive farming to small, less energy-intensive organic farms and from a highly industrial society to a more sustainable one that fosters better education and health care.

"Everyone who is concerned about Peak Oil needs to see this film," Richard Heindburg.
