An ecological fairy tale in which a cloned animal tells the story of the vanished humanity. Humans brought enormous changes for Earth during the last two centuries. With ongoing and incoming climate change processes, the future of our existence on the planet seems uncertain. “Scarcity” is a journey through desolate spaces, abandoned by humans, lost in time and history. The guide, a descendant of one of the first cloned animals, reveals memories of Earth’s inhabitants trying to understand what happened.
