Missouri Compromised

Arguments over Missouri River water management have been spinning for decades, impeded by the river's very infrastructure. Where river engineering birthed a strong recreation industry, it has brought heavy impacts to the ecosystem and unresolved challenges for the navigation industry, from the sediment-laden water. This documentary asks whether, after seventy years, industries and interests will continue to make the river conform to infrastructure, or whether people are ready to adjust themselves to what the Missouri River can really offer.
