An adventure documentary from the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. This little Buddhist nation, home to the world’s most ambitious commitment to protect nature, faces urgent pressure to dam every last river. A man named “Good Karma” guides an expedition into the unknown to keep his country’s mightiest river wild and free. His trek features a first-ever fishing descent onto virtually unexplored whitewater, including Class IV+ rapids. Along the way, the team makes deep connections and explores stark contrasts with the people of Bhutan and those of neighboring India (whose thirst for electricity is driving a dam frenzy).
