In recent years, the sea level in the Sundarbans in the east of India has been rising at an increased pace; oceanographers have calculated a rise of three millimeters as compared to a global average of two millimeters. Two of the delta’s islands have already been flooded. Scientists see a threat to the survival chances of some one hundred thousand people. The film tells the story of 13-year-old Anjona, who, together with her parents, is forced to leave her home on the island of Ghoramara, as it has begun to be inundated. Her new home on a neighboring island is also destroyed by water. Her future is uncertain. (Source: Earthcare Productions)
