Synopsis
What began as a childhood dream is now an epic 18-month adventure that spans the globe. More than a few have embarked on an ‘around the world’ adventure; some have even completed it, but no one has ever done so powered exclusively by the sun. Meet Louis Palmer and his home-made SOLARTAXI.

Full of surprises and apparently insurmountable obstacles, his journey begins in the summer of 2007. Along the way, Louis and his Solartaxi meet princes, movie stars, politicians and scientists, but most importantly, he encounters ordinary people, showing them: A car with zero emission is not a dream. This film is proof.

The first entirely green road movie.
