ABOUT THE FILM

What happens when the only home you’ve ever known is about to be swallowed by the sea? Facing the harsh realities of climate change, the 100,000 citizens of the remote Pacific atoll of Kiribati must find a way to survive imminent annihilation. While President Anote Tong races to figure out how to displace an entire nation with dignity, Sermary Tiare, a warm, sharp-witted young mother of six, must decide whether to leave the only place she knows and migrate to a new life in New Zealand. At stake is the survival of her people and 4000 years of i-Kiribati culture.
