Beyond the red lines is the story of a growing movement that says "Enough! Here and no further!” and commits civil disobedience taking the transition towards a climate just society into its own hands.

Whether in the Rheinish lignite area, the port of Amsterdam or on the streets of Paris during the World Climate Summit, the struggles for climate justice are fought at more and more fronts. In Paris a global climate agreement was adopted. But was it really about saving the planet? While negotiations and greenhouse gas emissions are in full swing, there are worlds between what would be needed to avert runaway climate chaos and the measures actually being taken.

This film portrays three initiatives before and during the World Climate Summit. It shows 1,300 people entering a lignite open cast mine and putting their bodies in the way of giant coal excavators in order to paralyze Europe's largest source of CO2 for one day (Ende Gelände). We hear the voices of people that block the import of fossil fuels at the harbour of Amsterdam (Climate camp „Ground Control“ & „Climate Games“). We meet people on a 5,000 km bicycle ride to Paris, providing on their way a common voice for a climate just world to countless local initiatives (Alternatiba).

The film also documents how tens of thousands take the streets of Paris during the World Climate Summit despite the proclaimed state of emergency. Meanwhile the largest climate change mobilization recorded in recent history unites more than 785,000 people in 2,200 events in 175 countries .

In the midst of giant machines, raised voices and apocalyptic landscapes, the logic of a system based on endless growth and its “green” crisis management is questioned.
