Set in an unspecified future at the precarious edge of humanity’s possible extinction, the film follows a group of children led by a strong-willed and resourceful little girl, who travel the seas and collect the stories of a world they never knew through objects that survived through time. Calling themselves The Boat People, the group finds objects amongst the ruins of human civilization, spread through the seas.
