The Carteret Islanderssome of the world's first environmental refugeesmust relocate from their remote island chain in the South Pacific Ocean when rising seas threaten their survival. The film follows relocation leader, Ursula Rakova, and a group of young islanders led by Nick Hakata as they search for land in war-torn Bougainville, an autonomous region of Papua New Guinea 50 miles across the open ocean.
The move will not be easy as Bougainville is recovering from a 10-year civil war. Many Bougainvilleans remain traumatized. Out of this tragedy comes a story of hope, strength, and profound generosity.
