The Eastern Gust of Change starts with a flashback to the good times the campus has seen in the 1940s with the use of archival footage from University of Colorado Norlin Library. As it transitions into the March and then September 2020, the University of Colorado students and staff reveal their stories on how they perceived the news of the shift to an online format and what lessons the pandemic has taught them. Accompanied by various shots of campus at different periods of time, the documentary makes this story personal to any person ever connected to CU Boulder.
