Zion National Park is the poster child for public lands on the brink of being loved to death. The last decade brought unprecedented numbers of tourists year after year—and now, the 100-year old park is at an inflection point. As Zion looks to its next hundred years, it needs a new generation of advocates for public land and stewards for conservation. From climbers on Zion’s towering sandstone to a first-time visitor from Japan, the film shares stories of people striving for balance in precious places. Shot in all four seasons across fourteen successive months, the film captures Zion like it’s never been seen before—instilling a sense of awe and ownership for public lands today, tomorrow, and forever.
