The film tells the story of what happens when helium balloons are released into the environment and how this is affecting wildlife. 

Film maker Carly Wilson speaks to activists and scientists and discovers that balloons burst into jellyfish-shaped fragments which are eaten by sea turtles who mistake them for food. She shows how balloons persist in the environment and how claims by the balloon industry that balloons don’t cause any harm are incorrect.
