Episode 3: Queen Bee

December 9, 2015


Our Climate

Without a queen bee, there’s no hive. Huguette Charles knows: She’s the queen bee to her own daughters. The income from the honey produced by the colonies they upkeep assures this mini human hive survives. They care for the bees like their own family, but how can love surmount hard facts like drought and deforestation? Although a mother’s love has no end, climate change looms darkly. Discover paradise before it’s long gone.
