This two-part action-adventure with an eco-twist is a most unusual approach to science communication - resulting in an entertaining mix of mainstream Hollywood- and Arthousepiece. Tree-communication research in Mission NinetyTwo is based on real-life science findings by Dr. Suzanne Simard as featured in the documentary "Intelligent Trees".
Synopsis Mission NinetyTwo II - Energy
Forest Scientist Sonia Engelhardt lives in hiding. While conducting research in the Canadian wilderness she unwittingly stirred up a hornet's nest of organized environmental crime. Alone and on the run, she is determined to solve an environmental crime with international implications: Behind the guise of a transitory energy policy, a terrorist group consisting of people from the nuclear power industry prepare for a fight to secure control of future global energy supply. From Berlin to East Frisia, and then back to North America by sea, Sonia tracks down a conspiracy with the project name "NinetyTwo", the atomic number of uranium and finally winds up deep below-ground. Hardship, painful losses and infinite loneliness turn Sonia into a kick-ass avenger who fights her way back from Europe to North America to find the last piece of the missing puzzle.
