A happenstance crew sets sail around the Svalbard* archipelago under the premise that they are the last artists on Earth, producing work that will be stored in the Global Seed Vault for an audience 1000 years in the future.
This documentary follows four individuals briefly in their everyday lives as they approach the arrival to a ship off date for a voyage around the Svalbard archipelago under the premise that they are the last artists on Earth. They are to each create something to be stored in the Svalbard Global Seed Vault for 1,000 years. As they prepare to set sail, we learn that the three men and one woman are all connected to the main industries of Svalbard, the northernmost Arctic human settlement on the planet. The crew circumnavigates the archipelago testing their medium and giving a more intimate glimpse into the economies of Svalbard and how they became compelled to find a creative mechanism for translating the immensity of this area, both geographically, but even more, as a barometer of the effects of climate change.
