SINOPSYS

The film starts with the dramatic shots of a fire. When the smoke clears out, all that remains are piles of ivory gathered by Kenyan poachers who are continuing to wipe out elephants to enrich themselves. What follows is a journey all over the six continents and twenty countries defaced in different ways by the human presence like the ever increasing sea level rise caused by rapid climate change, striking images that speak for themselves.
