The film follows a proposed uranium mill in southwestern Colorado – the first to be built in the U.S. in 30 years – and the emotional debate pitting a population desperate for jobs and financial stability against an environmental group based in nearby a resort town. Both sides of the issue are brought to life in heart-wrenching detail. The film offers no easy answers but aims instead to capture personal stories and paint a portrait of the lives behind this nuanced and complex issue.
