After the volcanic eruption of Mount Rokatenda, the people of Palue Island in east Indonesia shall be relocated.
But are the planned relocation and the 'new' life at Besar Island really promising? "Fighting for Nothing to Happen" accompanies Father Cyrillus, priest and employee of a Christian NGO, in his efforts to promote and drive forward the relocation project.
