Description

As climate change erases the Louisiana coast, the last two teenagers on Isle de Jean Charles fight to stay on an island that's been their family home for generations. Every hour, the equivalent of 1 whole football field of Louisiana coast is lost to the gulf. This heartwarming and gorgeously shot short film highlights the beauty, culture, and history at risk of being destroyed forever.
