A group of strong-minded people attempt the impossible: to change the public opinion of a town and eventually the nation to bring two dams down. Ultimately the community comes to consensus, launching the largest dam removal in history and showing the way to a more sustainable future. Amid grim environmental news, Return of the River is a film infused with hope.

Directed by Jessica Plumb and John Gussman.
