--it is a cautionary tale of what the film maker says are the dangers of fracking:
The film is set on two continents-- it shows fracking sites in Pennsylvania--and a farming region in Poland, where corporations have big plans for developing a fracking industry there.
The documentary records the efforts of farmers, trying to stop what they consider an assault on their way of life:
According to the film maker, there are many regions around the world where fracking is becoming an issue--regions keeping an eye on what happens here:
"A lot of people don't realize this but the whole world is looking at New York State. If New York State decides to frack and go for it, then I think it will be a domino effect and a lot people will say, well, if New York State said yes, then we should say yes," said film director Lech Kowalski.
Kowalski is a native of Utica, now living in Paris.
