Ben and Leslie Cash have long lived largely off the grid with their offspring—Bodevan, Kielyr, Vespyr, Rellian, Zaja and Nai—in a cabin in the mountains of Washington state. The parents have passed their ideals to their children, namely socialism (in its various forms) and survivalism. With the former, Ben considers most of western society as being fascist, especially corporate America. With the latter, he figures that no one will or should be there for you, so you'd better learn how to take care of yourself in all its aspects.

As such, the children have been subjected to vigorous physical training, know how to deal with minor bumps, bruises, cuts, sprains and even fractures, and know how to hunt, forage and grow their own food. The children are also non-registered home-schooled, meaning that they have no official academic records. Ben and Leslie have tried to make the children critical thinkers, however within the context of their ideals. Beyond these issues, Ben and Leslie made the decision to live this lifestyle for Leslie's health. Formerly a lawyer, Leslie was diagnosed as bipolar. Ben figures that this disorder started with her post-partum depression with Bo. Even with this lifestyle, Leslie's condition had become progressively worse. Despite not believing in western medicine, Ben, to deal with the illness, had sent Leslie to hospital, one close to Ben's sister, Harper, in Sacramento so that there could be family close by.

While in hospital, Leslie is able to commit suicide. Beyond the collective grief, Leslie's act brings out a battle between Ben and Leslie's father, Jack Bertrang, a wealthy Christian, who not only blames Ben for what happened to Leslie, but believes what he is doing to the children can legally be considered abuse. To be held in their church in New Mexico, Jack takes over the funeral arrangements to his and his complacent wife Abby's Christian morals, against what Ben knows were Leslie's wishes, she who believed in Buddhist philosophies. Although Jack threatens to call the police if Ben shows up to the funeral, he and the children believe it istheir mission to rescue Leslie to honor her last wish to be cremated in the Buddhist way. This mission not only may bring the divide between Jack and Ben to a head, but may also bring out some long seated issues within the Cash children as they are exposed to commercial America in all its good and bad, and as Bo grows into manhood, he who may have his own ideas of what he should do with the next phase of his life.

Das Gewissen einer Generation: Die politisch engagierte Folksängerin Joan Baez sang im Luftschutzbunker, während draußen die Bomben fielen. Aber sie ist auch eine der wichtigsten und bekanntesten Vertreterinnen der Folkmusik. Seltene Archivaufnahmen und sehr persönliche Interviews machen den Dokumentarfilm zu einem zugleich persönlichen und historischen Porträt.

In einem ersten umfassenden Dokumentarfilm über Joan Baez werden sowohl die Privatperson Baez als auch ihre Karriere, ihre Geschichte als Live- und Studiomusikerin und ihr bemerkenswerter Weg als Menschenrechtsaktivistin beleuchtet. Historische Aufnahmen zeigen Joan Baez bei ihrem umstrittenen Besuch in Nordvietnam, wo sie mit den Einwohnern von Hanoi während der heftigsten Luftangriffe des Kriegs betet, aber auch Martin Luther King Jr., der der inhaftierten Joan Baez einen Solidaritätsbesuch abstattet.

Musikalische Aufnahmen vom legendären Auftritt auf dem Newport Folk Festival 1959 oder eines frühen Auftritts im historischen Club 47 in Cambridge werden mit Interviews mit bekannten Persönlichkeiten wie David Crosby, Bob Dylan oder Reverend Jesse Jackson zu einer dichten Erzählung verwoben. Der Dokumentarfilm gibt in bisher nicht dagewesener Art und Weise Einblick in das Leben der Künstlerin und Aktivistin, die mit über 70 Jahren noch auf internationalen Tourneen unterwegs ist.

Auf der Suche nach Bodenschätzen scharrt "Der weiße Afrikaner" ein erlesenes Ensemble von Exoten und Exzentrikern um sich. Den leichtfüßigen Hasardeur Otto Wenicke, den Meister der semikriminellen Beschaffung - egal, ob Schürfmaterial oder Schiffe. Gustav von Thun, den schlitzohrigen Bonvivant, der sich auf das Betören der Upper Class versteht und für die Finanzierung von Merenskys Unternehmungen sorgt. Kipplinger, den nervösen Buchhalter, der sich als das größte Pokerface von allen entpuppt. Und Mashaba, den unerschütterlich loyalen Massaikrieger. Wie Amundsen und Scott liefern sich Hans und sein ehemaliger Freund und nun Rivale Albrecht Sterenberg einen Wettlauf um Diamanten, Gold und Platin. Und um die Hand der schönen Rosa von Zülow.
