On 14 August 2021, a major earthquake devastated the southern department of Haiti. More than 2,000 people and their livestock perished. High in the mountains, in the commune of Camp-Perrin, farmers were already facing alarming climate change, with problems of deforestation leading to landslides and rotting soil. "Eskwad" turns the lens on a local organisation, MP3k, which is working with farmers to restore their gardens. A few weeks after the earthquake, "Eskwad" captures Haitians using solidarity as a key ingredient in cultivating sustainability in agribusiness.
