Overwhelmed by the consequences of climate change, Doris and Charles are determined to do something.
Convinced that the solution is in the hands of young people, these two retirees sell their house in Zürich and buy a boat.
Their idea is simple. Take five young Swiss people to the arctic circle to observe the signs of global warming and then raise awareness through social medias amongst their generation.
The great adventure begins. For three weeks, the crew of the San Gottardo is going to navigate in hostile but beautiful landscapes. Armed with cameras, these kids are going to document the health of the end of the earth.
