From the film's synopsis:
"Five years ago, the Kenyan farmer Kisilu Musya started to document his family, his village and the impact that climate change is having on both. He has filmed floods, droughts and storms at close quarters, but the human cost for his children and wife is also depicted. When Kisulu's house is destroyed by a storm, the self-taught filmmaker starts a communal farmers' movement and calls for action against the extreme consequences of the weather. Kisulu makes it far in his struggle – all the way to both Oslo and the high circles of COP21 in Paris – but the further Kisulu gets into the world of global politics, the more resistance, bureaucracy and arrogance he encounters. 'Thank You for the Rain' is an inspiring and captivating tale of an indefatigable optimist, who nonetheless tests his limits in the fight for a greener world."
