What if your community had to decide whether to leave it’s homeland forever? This is the reality for the culturally unique Polynesian community of Takuu, a tiny lowlying atoll in the South Western Pacific. As a terrifying tidal flood rips through their already damaged home, the Takuu community experiences the devastating effects of climate change first hand. In this verite-style film, three intrepid characters Teloo, Endar and Satty, allow us into their lives and their culture and show us first hand the human impact of an environmental crisis.
