This documentary exploring some of the intricacies of British Columbia's controversial northeast coal development project ultimately questions whether a reliance on megaprojects is the way to finance a healthy economy. The film examines Japan's role as a potential buyer of the coal, the federal and provincial arguments about the cost of transportation infrastructures, workers' competition for jobs, the rivalry between the northeast project and the established coal operations in southeast B.C., and the financial losses that were involved.
