In 2001 a major wind farm was proposed for the middle of Nantucket Sound, fabled playground for America’s rich and famous. Dubbed “Cape Wind,” with 130 turbines standing 440 feet tall, the project was billed as a clean, green power plant that should be welcomed by all. Instead, Cape Wind became one of the decade’s most confounding political battles, cutting across party lines and creating strange alliances for and against. Imbedded behind the battle lines with full access to both sides and a commitment to impartial story telling, the filmmakers document a 21st century power struggle.

Directed by Robbie Gemmel and John Kirby. Produced by Dan Coffin, Robbie Gemmel, Libby Handros, John Kirby and Josh Levin.
