In an oil-scarce world, we know there are sacrifices to be made in the pursuit of energy. What no one expected was that a tiny Native community living down the river from Canada's tar sands would reach out to the world for help, and be heard.

For years, residents of Fort Chipewyan have been dying of rare forms of cancer. In order to protect their people, the downstream chiefs take their battle to the boardrooms of global oil companies, demanding change, and catch the attention of Hollywood's most influential filmmaker.

Discussion following the film will be led by Roland Hwang of the Natural Resources Defense Council who appears in the film.
