Scientist Hannele Korhonen has one ultimate passion: to be the best at what she does and be recognised for it. Her life changes dramatically when she is awarded a 1,5 million USD research grant by the United Arab Emirates to participate in their ambitious project to stimulate rainfall over the notoriously arid region.
The opportunity to get proper funding and do good sounds amazing. But, gradually Hennele learns that the financiers’ have their own agenda. Her enthusiasm morphs into an ethical dilemma and inner conflicts. If she succeeds whose clouds will she be stealing and what is the ultimate price of ambition?
