Description

At first, Ryan Cooper thinks a new pulp and paper mill in East Harbour will be a good thing, providing employment for the residents of his home town. But Ryan's girlfriend Alana is more worried about the mill's environmental impact - clearcutting and pollution. Worse, Alana discovers that the mill is going to be built on sacred Micmac land.
When they find the official environmental study, it turns out there are a lot of unanswered questions about the proposal. All of a sudden Ryan and Alana are in the middle of a fight that could tear their community apart.
