Lowland Kids

Lowland Kids tells the story of Howard and Juliette, the last teenagers on Isle de Jean Charles, a sinking island on the coast of Louisiana primarily inhabited by Native Americans.

To the two siblings, this place has always been home. After tragically losing their parents, their uncle has raised them on this island, passing on his love and appreciation for the land.

But the island is running out of time. Due to rising sea levels and hurricanes, the Brunet family finds themselves forced to leave Isle de Jean Charles, and saying goodbye is not easy. The future can’t possibly be brighter than the life they have here. Or could it?
