Synopsis: (Documentary) A glimpse into our future. Like so many others, an overwhelming sense of unfairness being perpetrated led to a small group of like minded activists from "Brew City" (aka Milwaukee, Wisconsin) to travel over 800 miles to Standing Rock's, Oceti Sakowin camp where protecting the water interfered with powerful oil interests. From arresting journalists to silence their voices to excessive and violent attacks on the peaceful resisting water protectors, these actions are documented in this raw and emotional film.
