This gorgeous and gripping documentary captures the true story of the decades-long struggle over the future of the Jumbo Valley of British Columbia’s Purcell Mountains. Set against a backdrop of toothy spires and some of the deepest snow on earth, the film takes audiences on a journey into the raw and rugged peaks of British Columbia. Exploring an epic tug of war between a proposed large-scale ski resort on one side and community members, First Nations, and conservationists on the other, the film documents a fierce ideological battle surrounding how we value land and why we care so deeply about our wild backyards.
