Saltspring Island: close to a city, but full of magical, almost untouched places. A small town with a Saturday market. And in the middle of the island… trees, lots of trees. When chainsaws begin ripping through the early morning silence of Saltspring, residents confront logging trucks and face the threat of prison terms to stop land developers from logging this West Coast paradise. The award-winning director of Margaret’s Museum, Mort Ransen, turns his camera on his own community to document the conflict between residents determined to protect their island, and the developers, defending their rights as landowners.
