The complex tie between natural disaster and migration. Through the accounts of Queen, who fled Nigeria due to oil-related environmental damage, Rubel, who escaped the floods in Bangladesh, Francesco, Luigi andCarlotta, Italian farmers facing desertification and biodiversity loss in Italy, the film documents climate change-induced migration. Expert opinion comes from a glaciologist, a climatological physicist, and an immigration rights lawyer. Though there is no clear definition for climate refugee, millions of people are forced to leave their habitat, temporarily or permanently, because of a marked environmental disruption and live in a state of limbo.
