This is the story of the Ayuquila River and the people who depend on it for their survival and prosperity. Since ancient times, communities along the river have survived on fishing and subsistence farming. With the construction of large dams and irrigation systems, the Ayuquila River valley became a prosperous sugar cane growing region. This attracted a sugar mill to the area that produced pollution and poisoned the river and killed the fish. Can these communities save the Ayuquila River without sacrificing their economic prosperity? The compelling messages in this documentary are of universal relevance, for intelligent use of natural resources - an issue that affects all of us.
