The world's most infamous activist duo strikes again! Like the two previous ones, the third account of the Yes Men's subversive antics is an amusing escapade through the absurdity of a world ruled by dishonest corporation. Presenting to the viewers the changes in climate in an approachable way, the Yes Men humorously and auto-ironically notice disturbing changes also in themselves. It's mid-life crisis. The motion picture is therefore more intimate, and it becomes a witty self-portrait of modern heroes fighting injustice – and simultaneously a portrait of average guys trying to combine their happening activities with family life and bringing up his kids up. If people like them can change the world, then each and every one of us can as well.

Andy Bichlbaum (aka Jacques Servin, 1963), Mike Bonanno (aka Igor Vamos, 1968) Activists known as the Yes Men, directors, producers, authors of books and columnists, creators of the non-profit Yes Lab organisation and the online Action Switchboard platform, which aims to organise various social media activities.
