DOCUMENTARY As a country disappears into the sea, its president fights for the future of his citizens. While the industrialized nations bicker about CO² emissions, Anote Tong's home is sinking. Tong is president of Kiribati, a small Pacific island nation. His land is destined to disappear, but Tong is trying to at least save his people's culture. He travels the world with the goal of winning dignified conditions for emigration for his fellow Kiribatians and enabling a future for their community. He tries to make it clear to world leaders that all the florid declarations in the world on climate change aren't going to save his country. He is striving for climate justice.
