Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
The ecological struggles of one New Jersey community serve as a microcosm for the issues that have erupted on a global scale in this provocative documentary from filmmaker Jared Flesher. The local ecosystem of Sourlands, New Jersey is in trouble. Invasive fauna, an unchecked deer population, and widespread habitat destruction have resulted in rising land prices and property taxes that threaten to put the local farmers out of business as erratic weather patterns wreck havoc on their crops. As a devoted team of engineers race to stop global warming and preserve precious energy, the struggle that once seemed local becomes frighteningly universal.
