From the Alaska natives to the Marshall Islanders, the effects of melting glaciers and rising waters will eradicate their homes.

The Marshall Islands, with an average elevation of six feet above sea level, are among the most sensitive environments to long term climate change. Rising seas may force the people of these islands to flee.

Halfway around the world, another culture in a vastly different environment is also confronting the life-altering realities of a warming world - the Arctic. Part of these ice-bound lands will soon be submerged. Today, thawing glaciers, changing wildlife populations and thinning ice over once stable lands are rapidly destabilizing traditional ways of northern native life.

This film gives the viewer a first hand look at the human implications of global warming and helps us identify with populations who face the threat of becoming environmental refugees. We also hear the inspiring voices of those who are working constantly to minimize the impact of global warming,  examine its causes, and encourage change.
