In the course of a long, slow take-over of the island of Funafuti, both drought and floods appear in a constant, uninterrupted rhythm. The state of flux between both types of events is reflected in the places and actions of the inhabitants, making the island's extremes seem familiar: the air is riven with anticipation and surprise.

The island of Funafuti, in the archipelago of Tuvalu, for some years now has become the stage for a unique phenomenon.  Due to the unnatural warming of the sea, saltwater seeps into the subsoil bubbling up through the porous terrain provoking floods which put the future of life on this island at risk.
