Synopsis (Presseheft):

Over the last five years Kisilu, a smallholder farmer in Kenya has used his camera to capture the life of his family, his village and the impacts of climate change. He has filmed floods, droughts and storms but also the more human costs - his kids are sent home from school when he can't pay the fees; men are moving to towns in search for jobs; and family tensions rise. Following a storm that destroys his house Kisilu starts building a community movement of farmers fighting the impacts of extreme weather and he takes this message of hope all the way to the UN Climate Talks, in Paris, COP21. Here, amid the murky cut and thrust of politics at the biggest environmental show on earth, Kisilu and Norwegian filmmaker Julia Dahr's relationship takes on a remarkable twist, shedding a powerful light on the climate justice movement and the vastly different worlds they represent.

Kisilu in Paris: You are there to be seen, not to be heard.

Kisilu (off): Are we to fight the climate change or the climate change will fight us? (on:) If you know anything good and you don't do it the whole world will blame you on that. To avoid being blamed I will try my level best to do it.
