This documentary takes a close look at the pulp and paper industry, which was once the jewel in the crown of Canada’s economy. Today, with so many mills closing, the future of the forestry communities that grew up around them is in question. Through lucid, inspired testimonials by former workers, this film delves into the industry’s glorious past and gauges the true impact of mill closings on local populations and on the way the forest is managed.
