X Trillion follows the gruelling journey of eXXpedition’s all-women crew led by Emily Penn as
they sail 3,000 miles across the North Pacific Ocean through the densest accumulation of
ocean plastic on the planet to make the unseen, seen.
The 14-strong international crew of scientists, sailors, designers, engineers, and teachers set
sail on a transformative month-long voyage. They leave families and land behind, coming
together battling high seas, storms and sea sickness, to carry out cutting edge microplastics
research and investigate the crisis of plastic pollution in one of the most remote places on Earth.
In a practical and emotional response to one of the biggest global challenges of our time, this is
a story of hope, filled with life, magic and a call to action that burns with optimism.
