Synopsis: At the edge of the Yangtze River, not far from the Three Gorges Dam, young men and women take up employment on a cruise ship, where they confront rising waters and a radically changing China.

This documentary speaks of the promise and the disruption the Three Gorges Dam will have on China and the local economy. We follow one of the many, many families who live at the edge of the river and who will be displaced when the dam goes in.

This is interesting, informative and disturbing all at the same time. Well worth watching.
