Zimbabwean deminers Shame, Cosimas and the medic Previous have been traveling to the other side of the world for years to clear mines from the ground in the British Falkland Islands. In the subpolar cold, among sand dunes and penguins, they defuse and blow up the legacies of a forgotten war. Their dangerous craft enables their families in Africa to live well. But what price do they pay for toiling most of their lives in the world’s most dangerous regions?
