The film follows a young Anglo-Finnish family as they rid themselves of all oil-based products for a year. The challenge proves to be more emotionally difficult than the family anticipates and John, must find a balance between living oil-free and keeping a functional family. Filmmaker John Webster undertook this oil diet to see what happens when individuals take responsibility for their contributions to climate change. During this year-long diet, the family remains in mainstream society, continuing their suburban lives. But the emotional strain the diet puts on the family offers more drama disaster sets in.
