“Whether you support or oppose offshore oil, this is one of the most important documentaries you will see in your lifetime. It is approximately 1 1/2 hours long, and you will not want to miss a minute of it.” ~Emilie Swearingen

Margaret Brown, a young filmmaker, received pictures of her family home in Alabama sent to her by her father showing the devastation caused by the Deep Water Horizon tragedy.
Making a documentary was not what she thought she would be concentrating on until she started talking to neighbors and others involved in this tragedy.  Included are the men who were on the rig when it exploded and survived and the families of those who didn’t.
She interviewed charter boat captains, owners of seafood businesses, and others who were promised money for their homes and businesses which never came as expected. 
Also shown are BP representatives as congress tries to lift the veil of secrecy behind the explosion. 
Big oil and gas just gave the public what they were asking for.  Who knew the price would be so high?
According to the trailer, “We all know the Deep Water Horizon tragedy was an utter environmental, economic, and public health disaster that continues to devastate the Gulf coast today.
As North Carolina's leaders continue to push to open our waters to offshore oil and gas drilling, it's critical for us to see and hear the stories that were not told about the spill, from those who experienced it firsthand.”
