This 90-minute documentary provides some background behind the Keystone XL pipeline under construction in the US. It takes us behind the scenes in the struggle over Canada's mining of the Athabasca Tar Sands at the head of the pipelines, the worlds largest and often labeled most destructive construction project on the planet.

Directed by Edmonton filmmakers Tom Radford and Niobe Thompson of Clearwater Media, and hosted by Dr. David Suzuki. The film focuses in on the campaign by First Nations Dene Elder Francois Paulette sharing with the world and international investors the threatening experiences of the people and the wildlife living down stream. Dr. David Schindler explains the 2010 independent research processes measuring pollution in the waters flowing through the tar sands and the direct consequences for the residents of the northern Alberta community of Fort Chipewyan.
