Impending extinction comes to a tipping point for one of the world’s most iconic species — the Southern Resident killer whales. For two filmmakers, this crisis sparks a stunning journey across the Pacific Northwest. They join activists, scientists and Indigenous leaders, in an attempt to uncover corruption and stop injustice before it’s too late.

After the film, join filmmakers Gloria and Elena, along with experts from the David Suzuki Foundation to discuss the major issues raised in the film and find out how you can take action.
