Two communities affected by
one new global market the trade in carbon dioxide. In Scotland a town has
been polluted by oil and chemical companies since the 1940s. In Brazil local people's
water and land is being swallowed up by destructive monoculture eucalyptus tree

Both communities now share a new threat. As part of the deal to
reduce greenhouse gases that cause dangerous climate change, major polluters
can now buy carbon credits that allow them to pay someone else to reduce
emissions instead of cutting their own pollution. What this means for those
living next to the oil industry in Scotland is the continuation of pollution
caused by their toxic neighbours. Meanwhile in Brazil the schemes that generate
carbon credits gives an injection of cash for more planting of the damaging
eucalyptus tree.

The two communities are now connected by bearing the brunt of
the new trade in carbon dioxide. The Carbon Connection follows the story of two
groups of people from each community who learned to use video cameras and made
their own films about living with the impacts of the trade in carbon. From
mental health issues in Scotland to the loss of medicinal plants in Brazil, the
communities discover the connections they have with each other and the film
follows them on this journey.
