The low-lying Pacific nation of Kiribati faces a daunting challenge: imminent annihilation from sea-level rise. As Anote Tong, Kiribatis President, races to find a way to protect his nations people and maintain their dignity, many iKiribati are already seeking safe harbor overseas. Set against the backdrop of international climate negotiations and the fight to recognize climate displacement as an urgent human rights issue, Anotes personal struggle to save his nation is intertwined with the extraordinary fate of Sermary, a young mother of six, who decides to migrate her family to New Zealand. At stake are the survival of Sermarys family, the iKiribati people, and 4,000 years of iKiribati culture; yet the story also serves as a cautionary tale for low-lying populations everywhere.
