Filmmaker Ben Kalina offers an illuminating look at the challenges faced by coastal communities as a result of climate change while exploring the proposal that beach engineering could help these areas survive and thrive. As home and business owners in cities such as Long Beach Island, NJ, attempt to fight off the advancing tides with mountains of sand, politicians and scientists strive to work with the local population to determine a more viable method of preventing the communities from being swallowed up by the oceans. Meanwhile, their options seem to be running out as quickly as their time on dry land.
