The American dream of owning a house with a white picket fence goes head to head with environmental sustainability in this urgent, beautifully crafted documentary. In the 1980s, an ambitious real estate developer came to Austin, Texas with a dream of transforming miles of pristine hill country into large-scale suburban subdivisions. When the community discovers the development threatens a local treasure—a fragile limestone aquifer and a naturally spring-fed swimming hole—an environmental movement rises up. Using this landmark struggle as a microcosm for what's happening in communities across the country today, filmmaker Laura Dunn offers a grand meditation on the nature of growth and the rapidly disappearing American landscape. Executive Produced by Terrence Malick and Robert Redford.
