When fishing guide/filmmaker Mark Titus learns why wild salmon populations plummeted in his native Pacific Northwest, he embarks on a journey to discover where the fish have gone and what might bring them back. Along the way, Titus unravels a trail of human hubris, historical amnesia and potential tragedy looming in Alaska - all conspiring to end the most sustainable wild food left on the planet. Battle lines are drawn and the fight for resource control begins as the story unfolds through the voices of the people who know the salmon best. Fishermen, tribal leaders, scientists, artists, authors and chefs - all with a shared knowledge and passion for wild salmon as cultural treasure, mystery from the sea and vital food source. Featuring artist Ray Troll, authors David James Duncan (The River Why), David R. Montgomery (King of Fish), Canadian activist Alexandra Morton, and Inaugural Head of the United States Environment Protection Agency, Bill Ruckelshaus.
