Mother of Pearl designer Amy Powney has always felt out of place in the fashion world. Raised off-the-grid by environmental activists on a remote, eco-friendly homestead, her upbringing instilled in her an uneasy attitude toward the environmental impact of her industry. When Powney wins the coveted Vogue award for Best Young Designer of the Year in 2017, she decides to use the cash prize to create a collection that is ethical and sustainable at every point along the supply chain, from fiber to finished garment. First-time feature director Becky Hutner joins Powney on her three year quest as they uncover the incredible waste and mind-boggling complexity of the global fashion supply chain at every turn. Traveling from bucolic Uruguayan sheep pastures to steam-powered Austrian garment factories, they blaze a new trail towards true sustainability, clearing a path for much bigger, societal change.
