Five individuals – a dentist, a biologist, a film editor, an author and a police detective – feel attractions and inclinations without knowing where these come from.
They undergo a process of radicalisation and eventually realise that if the world is to survive, someone needs to take a stand. Big Five is a story about powerlessness, activism, non-conformance and unbridled passion.
