About:
Mexican fishermen fight back against development plans that will destroy their way of life.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
In Baja, Mexico, a multinational developer plans to build an extensive wellness oasis, which will include nearly 4500 homes and create a footprint that will engulf the local fishing community of Todos Santos. Faced with the encroachment of their natural resources, depletion of the local ecology, and severe pollution, the fishermen band together to fight the developer and government agencies that enable these extreme resorts. Led by an inspiring young attorney, can this humble group succeed in stopping this unsustainable development and preserve their way of life?
