There is a big revolution going on in ‘the small’.  From energy to insurance, everything is small-scale and locally produced.  In this short documentary, witness a revolutionary answer to the world of multinationals.  After the industrial and the digital revolution, we are now in the middle of an energy revolution.  More and more people are installing solar panels on their roofs or banding together to build a windmill.  In the process they are becoming less dependent on major energy suppliers.  Their motto: do it yourself, do it together.
