    Drip. Drip. Drop. Three sleeping bags, an improvised kitchen, a jar of dried crickets. A number of leaks that exceeds the number of bowls to catch them in.
    Adrian's life changes forever after an experience of a tragic flash flood. Now a climate refugee, he finds himself in an assigned living space in a city - a room shared with two strangers. There's only one bag of redbush left between them.

    In this room the forces of fire and water meet each other, merging Adrian's dreams with reality. The past leaks into the present as he tries to rebuild his life. Navigating the chaos of the refugee system, strict food plans and survivors’ guilt Adrian searches for an escape in the world of firefighting - following the lead of charismatic Sabrina. There he finds himself exposed to technology that provides an extraordinary sense of precision and control yet threatens to take him further from his own humanity.

    “It means so much to be working at CPT, it’s such a good opportunity to work in a professional environment at my age. I didn’t think that was ever going to happen and it means the world to me. It’s really going to help prepare me for my future and where I want to go”
