Description

The film follows the relocation of the Carteret Islanders, a community living on a remote island chain in the South Pacific Ocean, and now, some of the world's first environmental refugees.  When climate change threatens their survival, the islanders must leave their ancestral land in search of new place to live.  The video follows a group of young islanders as they search for land and build relationships in war-torn Bougainville, 50 miles across the open ocean.
