Summary
This documentary film explores the increasing conflict between China's economic and social development, and the limits of its natural resources and energy. Also tells the history of the dam, how it began, how it was built, what it does, and what it does not do. All sides of the story are reported, from the desperate need for non-polluting power generation to the pollution disaster the dam itself has become. From economic stimulus for new jobs and industry to economic destruction for the people who lived beside the Yangtze
