A dark, funny, absurdist take on our responses to climate change, from the arch materialist who denies it, to those obsessed with getting ready for it, come hell…or high water!
Somewhere in the Caribbean, three turtles are staring in shock, disbelief and helplessness at the expanding patch of seaweed which threatens to destroy their habitat. The wealthy owners of nearby beachfront condominiums are obsessed with the threat to property values.
In Moray, a naïve couple are preparing for societal breakdown by shopping in the town’s new survivalist shop and emerge with a ridiculous amount of equipment. In Sweden a family is packing up essentials as they flee an approaching forest fire. Just as they’re about to leave, the son asks what they’ll do with grandma, asleep upstairs. The two parties meet in a forest, pool resources and set up camp. One by one, they disappear. Nature and wildlife seem to flourish in their place. In the Caribbean, the turtles swim away as the condo owners watch the seaweed invasion take hold.
