Balanced and understated portrait of the gold and silver mines in Esquel in southern Argentina, where Canadian company Meridian Gold proposes to extract the precious metals using toxic cyanide, with potentially disastrous environmental and public health consequences. Yet how can a community on the edge of desperate poverty refuse such an economic boost? The film is followed by a live link to Argentina for a Q&A with co-director Cristian Harbaruk.
