The video explores the survival of Apoteri, one of the remotest communities in the North Rupununi District. Deeply dependent on the resources around it, Apoteri’s youths are now migrating from the community in search of other opportunities as they are no longer content with the traditional ways of living. When they return to the community it is with new ideas and technologies. The elders are now looking at how they can generate the opportunities needed to keep the youths in the village and keep their culture alive.
