Ed Begley, Jr. narrates this story of the battle being fought by the people of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to protect the region they love and to encourage saner water policies for all the people of California. This film explores the powerful forces arrayed against the Delta and the habitat, fisheries, farming, and communities that are threatened by mistaken ideas that drive California’s water policy today. The film was completed before the July 2012 joint announcement by Governor Brown and Secretary of the Interior Salazar to proceed with construction of Peripheral Tunnels before all environmental issues are addressed and resolved.
