Beyond climate tipping points there is the time of The Failing. Harry Sinclair, aging exCeo of Clearwater Corporation, travels the fringes of an everexpanding Australian desert. Perched on a dray pulled by his only companion, a fractious camel, Harry is haunted by his past as a water prospector who, in the search for water, drove the beleaguered inhabitants of the west from their lands.
A gentle and hauntingly beautiful clifi roadtrip, Thirst meanders through an outback broken by unending drought. Interwoven through a vast Australian landscape, Thirst explores the future challenges caused by our present inaction on climate change and our overexploitation of natural resources and, at its conclusion, reveals a glimmer of hope at the chaotic end of the 21st century.
