At the beginning of the 20th century, a Japanese scholar, Abe Masanao, devoted his life to filming and studying clouds around the world. A century later, as if in echo, major campaign of observation of the clouds takes place, on the island of Barbados, in the Caribbean. Scientists from all over the world are involved.
What do we know about clouds? About their birth and death? About their role in climate change? So little.
Through the successes and failures of the campaign, Barbadians and climatologists explore the fascination that clouds inspire.
