As energy exploration, excavation and export remain Canada’s economic backbone, contradictions and debates abound on the risks and rewards of development. The film, which captures the scenic beauty of northwestern Canada, asks a sensible question: What price are we willing to pay for our consumption? And, it seeks a comprehensive answer that involves all sides of four major energy projects on the Peace River that will forever alter the magnificent landscape of this area. Hydroelectric damming, natural gas fracturing, nuclear reactors and the oil sands present diverse perils and benefits. What is the best path? By skillfully avoiding experts and activists, the film gives voice to those dedicated to research and reason, making this a vital film amidst the chorus of opinions polluting our headlines. Directed by Charles Wilkinson. Produced by Tina Schliesser.
