This documentary introduces viewers to the complexities of building a physical wall along the Rio Grande River - the actual border between Mexico and Texas. It provides a realistic, yet objective study of the current and proposed walls. It explores how a concrete and steel barrier could destroy dramatic landforms and precious habitat for wildlife, while also creating untenable conditions for the farmers and ranchers who live along this river.
This stunning work captures the beauty of the Rio Grande River as it winds through vast canyons and lush semi-tropical vegetation. By also presenting the views of the Americans who actually live and work along the river, it provides a tremendous service to educate the public about the true impact such a structure would have on this vital magnificent river.
