In the 1980s, an ambitious real estate developer came to Austin, Texas with a dream – to transform miles of pristine wilderness into a sprawling self-sufficient city. When the development threatened a local treasure, a fragile limestone aquifer and a naturally spring-fed swimming hole, the community decided to fight back. Laura Dunn's documentary uses this landmark struggle – a microcosm of what's happening in communities across the country today – to consider the cost of the American dream.
