The Arctic plains are an eminent example of nature’s untouched beauty: an endless nothing in which only few know how to survive. But dangerous pesticides are silently accumulating here, poisoning its inhabitants.
A young Inuit woman investigates the sources of this pollution. Her journey takes her to three different continents, Asia, South- America and Africa, where she is confronted with conflicting interests when it comes to short-term gains and healthy solutions for agriculture, industries and health care.
The recent developments in the Arctic are a disturbing preview of the consequences of structural pollution of the environmental system worldwide.
