Synopsis

  • DC Environmental FF

With the personal storytelling of native West Virginians, this doc serves as a meditation on the suffering and devastation brought on by the coal industry and its decline. From the realities of a crumbling economy, to the ravages of the opioid epidemic, to the irreparable environmental damage and its tragic impact on human health – a cautionary tale and an elegy to a vanishing Appalachia.
