Synopsis

In the middle of the climate crisis! This is a documentary made by 4 friends living in Singapore, Taiwan and Korea.
 Throughout our conversation online, we talked about abandoned objects and urban development as images of the human-made world. Here is the story about the climate crisis that spans across oceans. We call ourselves pigeons connected with the same love for nature and the environment. We share out thoughts and sense about this climate crisis by sending letters to each other. Where is our story headed?​
