In the remote New Zealand countryside the underbelly of a farming community continues to pollute the water and destroy the last remaining natural values of the
Pahaoa River. Yet, not all is lost.
One farmer and his team of dogs challenge the status quo, battling against all odds to keep the river clean, protect the wildlife and to simply survive in this isolated and lawless land.
