A short documentary about a playful childhood at the frontline of climate change
Grace is a young girl from rural Kenya with a lot of energy, humor and big dreams. Her family has lived as farmers in balance with nature for generations, but now climate change is threatening to destroy it all. Grace loves to come up with creative ideas to make her siblings laugh, and wants to become a comedian as well as a farmer just as her family has for generations. But life as a farmer is much more challenging today than when her grandparents first became farmers. Can she follow her dreams even though extreme weather threatens to destroy her family farm?
