Description:
  Mt. Tamalpais, guardian peak of the SF Bay Area, is considered sacred by many, Native and non-native alike. In 1950, the Army Corps of Engineers bulldozed the highest peak of the mountain to build an Air Force Station tasked with directing jet interceptors and short range Nike nuclear missiles against the potential threat of Russian nuclear bombers.

By 1980 the base was obsolete and summarily closed. The military literally walked away from dozens of structures, leaving behind a huge toxic mess on the mountain---cables, fencing, foundations, and infrastructure.

Through the use of historical footage, interviews and beautiful cinematography, this film explores the history of the West Peak of Mt. Tamalpais and how local citizens have been fighting to restore their mountain to a natural state.

The script, movingly narrated by Peter Coyote, provides both a historical and spiritual overview of place, and the long continuum of humans relating to and caring deeply for the peaks of Mt. Tamalpais.
