Lawrence is a Navajo coal miner, whose livelihood and ancestors are connected to Black Mesa. Rising above billions of dollars of coal, this sacred mountain constantly reminds Lawrence of his struggles with destroying nature as a means to provide for his family. Meanwhile, his daughter Caitlin is coming to terms with her own conflicted feelings as a homecoming queen who plays varsity men’s football.
Universal in themes, yet intimate in its details, this award winning documentary is stunningly cinematic and a thoughtfully observed family story set against rapidly changing landscape and an uncertain future.
