The film is directed by Matt Richmond and follows him as he prepares for his annual Energy Fair, a symposium that attracts political leaders, leading academics and hundreds of guests. Along the way, viewers learn how Bernie’s brothers with disabilities inspire him, how he came to live in Alaska, and how he came to his belief that literally anything is possible if you work hard enough.
Inventor, entrepreneur and imagineer Bernie Karl runs Chena Hot Springs Resort in Alaska year-round on 100% geothermal power. Some of his innovations hold promise for sustainable living, while others - like his ice museum and airplane on stilts - are just weird... or they?
