Contents Notes
At the headwaters of the Kvichak and the Nushagak Rivers in Bristol Bay Alaska -- the two largest remaining sockeye salmon runs on the planet -- mining companies Northern Dynasty Minerals and Anglo American have proposed to extract what may prove to be the richest deposit of gold and copper in the world. Documenting the growing unrest among native, commercial and sport fisherman, [the film] is a portrait of a unique way of life that won't survive if the salmon don't return with Bristol Bay's tide.
