The film focuses on three mothers, four years after losing their teenage children in a tragic plane crash. They embark on a thirty-six mile boat journey down the Gila River and into the Gila Wilderness in Southwestern New Mexico. The three mothers also traveled to Washington, D.C. to meet with Congressional leaders and advocate for Wild and Scenic designations for portions of the Gila River. Their three KIDS, avid environmentalists, were studying the effects of a devastating forest fire when their plane went down.
Passionate advocates for the wild, the children’s lives were inextricably linked to the Gila. As the women travel on kayaks down the river, their physical journey mirrors a journey of their souls through extreme grief as they pass through the heart of the Gila. What will they learn about themselves, their children’s legacy, and the importance of wild river systems to the spiritual health of humanity in a world where wild places are rapidly disappearing?
