The magnificent lagoon of Mayotte, an island in the Indian Ocean, is at the very heart of local life.
Two young women from provincial France, Emma and Thérèse, share the same passion and commitment. As students and then teachers in the prewar Thirties, they ignore convention; they dream of leaving France and raising a child together; they travel to the USSR in the summer of 1935 in quest of the "new woman". Their paths diverge against the background of approaching war.
Between the Caribbean sea and the Maya Mountains lies Toledo, known as The Forgotten District of Belize, Central America.

For the last 20 years, the Maya have been promoting their own ecotourism programme in order to protect their rainforest and traditions. Despite constant opposition from the government and the tourist industry, Margarita, Reyes, Chet and their friends remain strong and optimistic. This film is a tribute to their tireless efforts.
