Aya has grown up with her mother on the island of Lahou in southern Côte d’Ivoire. She plays with her friends, looks after her younger brother, and leads a completely normal life in many ways. Apart from the fact that the island she lives on is sinking into the sea. So, her family has to decide whether to move or to first dig up the remains of Aya’s father before his grave will be forever lost to the ocean. There is one thing Aya knows for sure: Even if the sea makes her home disappear, she will stay and raise her voice in the fight against global warming.
