Storyline

Michael Rodriquez comes home from 2 tours of combat duty to find his hometown on the brink of self-destruction. A corrupt politician has sold out his small farming town to an evil corporation (Poseidon) controlling most of the county, and the states water. The starving community is collapsing, while the corporation buys up their land. The political shield behind Poseidon's death grip on water is a small, endangered fish. Poseidon uses the fish to leverage the congressional consent to construct 3 brand new dams. This only motivates a beautiful biologist by the name of Meghan Conner's to find a way to save the fish and transplant them, removing them from the endangered species list and taking away Poseidon's powers.

An excellent film
18 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Dam California" as its intro explains, is a work of fiction based on actual events in California (the water rights in 2008.) It takes several stories and interweaves them together to create a whole picture about how one person's choice ultimately affects the area surrounding them, in this case, the small town of Daly City, California. A large water company plans to build dams that will destroy a small towns agricultural lifestyle and force families to sell their beloved farms.

The film jumps between the story of Michael Rodriguez (Josh Reyes) who is a recently discharged Marine and a group of scientists, Dr. Megan Connors (Sarah Poynter), Dr. Shiller (Scott Myers), and Brad (Scott Reeves) who are opposing the large water company, appropriately named "Poseidon."

It's part documentary, part action and tells its story in a unique style. For local residents of California and northern Nevada, you will recognize familiar sights throughout the film that are accurately depicted.

I give this film a 10/10 purely for its accuracy on multiple levels (acting, connecting with the audience, reflecting current events going on in the world today, and for the character development and captivating story line.)
