Every day, a father and his son jump with a parachute from their house attached to a cliff high in the cold mountains. They carry with them their precious cargo of ice that they produce by freezing water outside their sub-zero home. One day the temperature begins to creep above freezing leading to dire consequences for the family in this foreboding animation about climate change and its effects.
