Synopsis

In 2004, the tsunami that devastated Southeast Asia did not spare the province of Aceh, north of the island of Sumatra, and killed nearly 170,000 people. A catastrophe still very present in the memory of the inhabitants. Beyond the one-time disasters, the country is hit hard by the consequences of global warming, including torrential rains that cause floodings. While 40% of the city is below sea level and the capital is sinking, the government has launched a colossal project to save Jakarta: the construction of a giant waterfront dyke.
