In this David and Goliath story for the 21st century, a group of proud Scottish homeowners take on celebrity tycoon Donald Trump as he buys up one of Scotland’s last wilderness areas to build a golf resort. The billionaire businessman is determined to build the world’s greatest golf course on this protected conservation area, complete with a luxury hotel. The proposal should be preposterous, but the Scottish government, desperate to bring jobs to the region, has overturned its own environmental laws to give Trump the green light. When local filmmaker Anthony Baxter begins investigating the dispute, he finds himself abruptly arrested by police at Trump’s beck and call.  Directed by Anthony Baxter. Produced by Richard Phinney. Winner, The Sheffield Green Award, Sheffield Doc/Fest. Jury Award, 2012 Wild and Scenic Film Festival.
