Rain does not fall evenly across the African continent. Some places are so far from mountain ranges and coasts that rainclouds evaporate before they reach them. In other places, cold ocean currents sweeping Africa's shores starve the land of moisture. As a whole, Africa is a dry continent and deserts dominate the landscape. This film is a celebration of the tenacity and ingenuity of life.
