Examines how modern civilization is approaching the limits of growth and the end of cheap oil, the basis of North American life in the 21st century. Focuses on suburbs as both the symbol and cause of problems, and examines several couples who have chosen to opt out of the so-called "American Dream" to live more responsible, meaningful lives. Also examines citizens' groups confronting our addiction to oil in the Peak Oil movement, and explores viable alternatives for ensuring the survival of a sustainable civilization.
