The Change Agents is the coming-of-age story of Carly Dutoff, a Doukhobor girl living with her Deda (Grandfather) in a beautiful mountain town in the interior of British Columbia.
Carly has become alienated from her peers due to her growing obsession with the pressing environmental issues facing the planet today.
Her friends, many of whom support the environmental movement in principle, “just want to have fun” during their final year of high school. Carly, however, is unable to forget her fears about the planet’s uncertain future.
Frustrated by the apathy of the adults who surround her... Carly draws upon her Doukhobor ancestry and along with a few faithful followers organizes a youth driven movement that challenges their community and all Canadians to step up and show environmental global leadership.
The Change Agents is a drama about finding the strength to turn your beliefs into action.
It is an important film because it captures the authentic voice of youth and leaves us hopeful.
