Water is the main protagonist, seen in all its great and terrible beauty. Mountains of ice move and break apart as if they had a life of their own. Travelling the world, from the precarious frozen waters of Russia’s Lake Baikal, to Miami in the throes of Hurricane Irma, to Venezuela’s mighty Angel Falls, in order to paint a portrait of this fluid life force in all of its glorious forms. Meanwhile, fragile humans experience life and death, joy and despair, in the face of its power.
