Synopsis: (Documentary) Water, sand, and life: the three elements that make up dune lakes, water bodies found around the world. A Journey with Emmy award-winning film-maker Elam Stoltzfus on an odyssey spanning from the United States to Australia as he reveals why the coastal dune lakes of northwest Florida are unique and what can be done to protect them. Florida's dune lakes are home to species only found there, many of them endangered, like the Choctawhatchee beach mouse, loggerhead sea turtle, and snowy plover. These lakes also offer locals and visitors alike a peaceful haven, which has led to an increase in human activity, both positive and negative as humans have the largest impact on these coastal system, and this film also discusses what local organizations are doing to ensure that future generations can watch endangered wildlife on these otherworldly, serene coastal dune lakes.
