Synopsis

Over a period of five years Kisilu Musya, a Kenyan farmer, documented his family, his village and the damaging effects of climate change on his community, filming floods, droughts and storms, and the way they force men to leave their families behind in search for jobs. Following a storm that destroys his house, Kisilu starts an activist movement made up of local farmers who travel to the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, held in Paris, to raise awareness of the impact of extreme weather on their community.
