While the world is in crisis, there is a man who thinks the future is as bright as it can be. Peter Diamandis, author of the book Abundance and co-founder of Singularity University, sees how technology can soon provide all basic needs such as energy, clean drinking water and food for the growing world population, with ease.

This documentary explores the world of ever faster growing technological development, in which major changes can happen overnight, and investigates if technological developments that are just around the corner can solve the world’s mayor problems within the next 20 to 30 years. Will we soon live in a world of abundance?
