Follow a group of strong-minded people as they attempt the impossible: to change the public opinion of a town, and eventually the nation, to bring down two dams. Ultimately, the community comes to consensus, launching the largest dam removal project in history and showing the way to more sustainable future. Reviewed as “hell-raising documentary filmmaking at its best”, Return of the River is a film infused with hope, exploring an unlikely victory for environmental and social justice.
