Being ground zero for the effects of climate change, the film shares the visions of the future from over 37 children between the ages of 7-18. Created during the pandemic, interviews and drawings were gathered depicting what Miami will look like in 2050. From grim predictions to offerings of hope, the next generation has much to say and it is time that we listen.
