If a crime is committed in order to prevent a greater crime, is it forgivable? Or is it, in fact, necessary? Ken Ward breaks the law to fulfill what he sees as his personal obligation to future generations. In 2016, Ken (along with the director, co-producer, and cinematographer) was arrested and charged during a coordinated action that shut down tar-sands oil pipelines; potentially putting him behind bars for 20 years.
