How can one help one’s great-grandchild who will be born fifty years from now? What do we pass on to those who come after us? And what difference can one person make in the world? These are the universal questions that occupy director John Webster in this cinematic letter to his imagined future great-grandchild. She will walk on a very different shoreline from the one we know. Taking a personal experience of loss as a starting point, the director takes us on a journey from Finland to the coal mines of Siberia, the Marshall Islands, and across the US. The story weaves together the past, present and future into a moving documentary film about the power each of us has to make a difference.
