Is it worth closing thousands of acres of parklands so a state can better balance its budget? This documentary investigates the decision made by the state of California to shutter one quarter of its 278 parks and the angry resistance the plan met from local community members whose livelihoods could be threatened by the loss of tourism dollars. Visiting each of the first 70 locations slated for closure, the filmmakers deliver both scenic beauty and poignant drama. 30 min. Soundtrack: English; behind-the-scenes footage; bonus footage; theatrical trailer.
