In a world of climate change and environmental catastrophes, two sisters, Anna and Emma, and their companions, the California Condors, stand out as a beacon of hope. Together with their father, Chris Parish, the director of the Peregrine Fund at Vermillion Cliffs, and their mother, Ellen Parish, teacher and leader for the environmental organization, “Roots and Shoots,” they fight for the survival of the California Condors. The girls understand that if we do not take care of the life surrounding us, we will in the end face the possibility of our own extinction. Directed and produced by Katja Torneman.
