The Eel River in Northern California is arguably the best opportunity for wild salmon recovery on the entire west coast. The river and salmon have weathered decades of over-fishing, abusive logging, catastrophic floods, droughts and a hydro power dam that diverts water out of basin. Today the Eel’s recovering wild salmon compete for water with the region’s multi-billion dollar underground cannabis economy and the wine industries of Sonoma and Mendocino, California. This film is rooted in the belief that we can live symbiotically with our watersheds and encourage both a river’s recovery and economic future.
