Synopsis

Two places at the edge of our planet are making headlines due to climate change: Thule, Greenland, because of record ice melts there; and Tuvalu, because this remote Pacific island nation is one of the first countries on the verge of sinking as a result of rising sea levels. Whereas for us the warming of the planet occurs almost solely in the media, it is changing the entire existence for the inhabitants of Thule and Tuvalu.

Thule and Tuvalu - one more myth of paradise lost. If God is real, we should just hope he was not joking to Noah, when he promissed never to drown the world again. Simple and beautiful men and women tell their stories of how we all are taking away their home with a help of not careing.
