Our project sets out to exemplify three leaders who are directly confronting the devastating impacts of climate change to help their nations survive. The film takes an intimate look at communities across the globe, giving us a unique view of how women in particular are experiencing and responding to the challenges of climate change in Peru, Fiji and Malawi. It explores their unique obstacles connected to their homelands and cultures, how their leadership arose within this movement, and discovers how they plan to survive within a rapidly changing environment.
