Brief synopsis

It is dawn in Moddergat, a small coastal village in the Netherlands in the year 2039. There is little time left for the four-headed delegation of the International Climate Tribunal to prepare the human sacrifice that will keep the dangers of climate change at bay. But when the tide is high and the world is watching, the sacrifice asks himself: is it really worth dying for?
