The story of inventor Thomas Midgley's life reads like a cautionary tale for future generations. Using Midgley's story as a basis to examine the relationship between what we set out to do and where our actions lead us, this sometimes sad, sometimes funny film looks at the fickle nature of our existence and the footprint we leave behind when we are gone.
