Scientist Hannele Korhonen was invited to the United Arab Emirates to participate in an ambitious project stimulating rainfall over the notoriously arid region. The opportunity sounded amazing, but as Hannele gradually learns of the project’s agenda, her enthusiasm morphs into an ethical dilemma and inner conflict. If she succeeds, whose clouds will she be stealing and what is the ultimate price of ambition?
