Ireland, Norway, and Newfoundland – facing a future of oil extraction and fish depletion

As the oil majors drive their drills deeper into the fragile seas, and the world’s largest fishing companies push fish stocks to the brink, coastal communities and their crucial resources are fast approaching a point of no return. Filmed in remote and breathtaking areas of the North Atlantic, and at close quarters with some of the sea’s captivating characters, this film features three intimate stories from the global resource debate. It suggests that our communities must learn from the past in order to secure a brighter future.
