This film was a New York Times critic's pick; it is a consciousness-raising documentary on the fight for the future. The people of the Appalachian West Virginia try to stop a giant coal company from blowing up a pristine mountain for its coal. It is a tale of how ordinary folks can be passionate about protecting the integrity and future for our children and natural resources. These people are an inspiration.
