Atlantic follows the fortunes of three small fishing communities - in Ireland, Norway and Newfoundland – which are at turns united and divided by the Atlantic Ocean. In recent times, mounting challenges within their own industries, the fragile environment, and the lure of high wages for young fishermen on the oil rigs have seen these fishing communities struggle to maintain their traditional way of life.

As the oil majors push into deeper water and further into the Arctic, and the world’s largest fishing companies chase the last great Atlantic shoals, the impact on coastal communities and the ecosystems they rely on is reaching a tipping point. Atlantic tells three very personal stories of those who face the devastating prospect of having their livelihoods taken from them, and their communities destroyed both environmentally and economically.

Way up in the far northwest of the Russian Tundra lies the picturesque village of Krasnoschchelye. Its inhabitants, indigenous Sámi people, live from the ancient tradition of reindeer husbandry. Once a year the reindeer herders are celebrated for their labors in a festival that features a reindeer sleigh race where they can display their skills. But the kolkhoz is insolvent and it looks like the festival might have to be cancelled – a symbol of the Sámi tradition and culture in Russia, currently threatened with extinction. 30 year old Sasha, a member of the newly founded Sámi parliament in Russia fights for the festival and the survival of her village.
