The life of the inhabitants of a strip of land in the Mekong Delta is strongly threatened by erosion aggravated by new human activities. The lack of sediments makes many species of fish disappear and the river can no longer feed the population. The ancestral profession of fisherman is disappearing, as well as the land, houses and graves, gradually swallowed up by the hungry river.
