In southern Madagascar environmental change is pushing poor people even closer to the margins of survival. Two indigenous communities, the Antandroy and Antanosy share the experience of this environment through their own films and life stories.

Sorghum is a crop of the Antandroy and is part of its people's heritage. It had all but disappeared until recently - replaced by donations of corn during the drought. Lost to most, but never forgotten, sorghum is making a comeback in Androy. Many farmers are eager to rediscover the crop which proves to be very resistant to drought.

In this film an Antandroy elder teaches a younger woman how to cook the sorghum while discussing its benefits, history and offering some advice for the future.
