The Storyline

Sad Earth 2018

Observing their neighbourhood through the eyes of tourists, a group of young friends are greatly embarrassed by the mess they see. With the help of community volunteers from Greenway, they help restore 'Messview Park' to Millview Park.


While cleaning up Millview Park everyone learns about reducing waste and recycling. This inspires them to organise a fashion show, where everyone models items made from rubbish!
