Three conflict zones plagued by transboundary infestations, destruction, and instability. Struggling with ISIS, locusts, and diamond mining, protagonists contemplate the impossible thought of turning their backs on their homes, now changed forever. These are stories of anthropomorphized xenophobia, familial loss, resilience, and reconstruction.

Bringing together mobile phone videos of transboundary gregarious locust swarms, political rallies, and scientific webinars, this found-footage, experimental video raises questions about the selective porosity of borders amidst environmental crisis, farmer insecurity, and nationalism in South Asia.
