Movie Info

Director Jennifer Redfearn tells the story of the Carteret Islanders -- a small society whose ancestral home in the remote islands of the South Pacific is rapidly being swallowed up by the ocean -- and their fight to retain their rich culture in the face of unprecedented hardship. For the past 20 years, rising sea levels have forced the peaceful islanders to seek shelter on higher ground. As their population continues to grow, food supplies dwindle, and the Carterets make multiple attempts to relocate -- first an region torn apart by civil war, and next to an area where their homes are burned to the ground by a rival community. Now, as the desperate islanders return to their land of origin, which is projected to be completely submerged by the year 2015, they must make the difficult decision to stay and face a monumental struggle, or to finally leave the islands behind and risk having their rich heritage forever washed away.
