Storyline

When Emma Gardner, a whip smart NYC reporter learns of her father's untimely death, she returns to her home town to find that the idyllic farming community of her childhood has been ravaged by drought and has become a place tormented by gangs and the ill effects of extreme poverty. She quickly figures out that her dad's accidental death was not accidental at all. The lists of possible suspects include overly zealous environmentalists, a local war lord and other farmers jealous of her father's outstanding reputation. Written by AnonymousB

What a ridiculous premise
5 January 2019 | by williamrmckernSee all my reviews

An implausible plot financed by the Lucas Oil family to needlessly slag environmentalists and government officials. We're supposed to believe that California's water crisis isn't caused by fossil-fuel enabled climate change, over development, or poor planning and strategy with respect to water consumption. Nope, it's caused by evil environmentalists and lazy public employees.

On the plus side, Jane Seymour still looks good and she gives a credible performance. Much of the rest of the cast also does good work. But that doesn't take away from the fact that this film is pure disinformation.
