How To Kill a Cloud
Hannele Korhonen has one ultimate passion: to be recognized as the best in her scientific field. Her life dramatically changes when she is awarded a 1.5 million USD research grant by the United Arab Emirates to participate in an ambitious project stimulating rainfall over a notoriously arid region. The opportunity sounds amazing, but Hennele gradually learns of the financiers agenda. Her enthusiasm morphs into an ethical dilemma and inner conflict. If she succeeds, whose clouds will she be stealing and what is the ultimate price of ambition?
