The Last Green Thread

On a narrow path through Florida's Everglades Headwaters, three friends embark on a journey to survey a fragile wilderness corridor before it disappears forever. Amidst a backdrop of massive development and population growth, their expedition documents the vitality and connectedness of an ecosystem in a state of rapid transformation. Mother nature may be resilient - but when the last green thread is stretched to the breaking point, can we summon the courage and resourcefulness to change course?
