|aA hard-hitting documentary that brings us to the heart of major issues confronting humanity. Each year, millions of people the world over are driven to forced displacement. Global warming and the unbridled exploitation of natural resources are degrading the life-supporting environments of rural populations. This film sheds light on the little-known plight of a category of individuals who are suffering the repercussions. The numbers of environmental refugees is growing. From the Maldives to Brazil to Canada, the disturbing account of people who have been uprooted are amazingly similar. Their story is one of rage, powerlessness, injustice and betrayal.
