A time traveling guide channeled by the land recounts the Everglades’ violent past and warns of Florida's precarious future. Told through groundbreaking environmental writer Marjory Stoneman Douglas's book The Everglades: River of Grass (1947), the film explores how Florida’s vulnerability to climate change is historically rooted in the Everglades’ ongoing legacies of colonization.

The film has received generous support from the Sundance Documentary Fund and Field of Vision.
