The great salmon runs of the Columbia River teeter on the edge of extinction. This Emmy Award-winning film examines the impact of human development - dams, logging, and fishing - on the salmon population of the Pacific Northwest. It profiles a classic tale of the conflict between development and preserving endangered species.

Competing interests discuss their perspectives: environmentalists, farmers, fishermen, utilities managers, and biologists. Features a Native American sacred salmon ceremony.

Though produced in the 1990's the film is as relevant today as when it was first made, as the threat to salmon runs increases.
