Short Synopsis:

The story of inventor Thomas Midgley’s life reads like a cautionary tale for future generations. However, at the time of his death he was blissfully unaware of the future ramifications of his inventions. This film looks at the fickle nature of our existence and the footprint we leave beind when we're gone.
The film follows the story of five individuals who set out with noble intentions only to find themselves reeking havoc in the lives of others. The film uses Midgley’s story as a basis to examine the relationship between what we set out to do and where our actions lead us.
