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.
