1h 3min · Documentary, Biography, Drama · 30 May 2014
Set in Alaska's Tongass National Forest, this film tells the story of the biggest logging frenzy in American history. A massive collision of Washington bullying, big business and Native American naivete resulted in a huge Native land claims settlement. It turned Alaska Native tribes into corporations. The result was a swath of tragic scars in a magnificent forest wilderness. Natives struggled to adapt to new roles as corporate shareholders. For one Native brother and sister, this transition divided them. While the brother led the native corporation's clear cut logging, his sister became a fierce leader in the battle to stop the destruction. Then a life threatening illness drew them back together as one sibling offered the other a lifesaving gift.
