In the summer of 2013, a determined and diverse group of people from all over the UK and further afield gathered together at the gates of the Cuadrilla fracking site in Balcombe, West Sussex.

Individuals, families, politicians and experts were watched by the world's media as they fought policy and then the police to say no to a council and government that ignored their pleas to refuse permission to drill.

As drilling progressed through August, this film captures not only the endeavor to be heard, but also the love and loss experienced by many who followed their hearts to express dismay and outrage at the fracturing of our land and society.
