Description

In the small farming community of Ross Port, Willie Corduff and a group of fellow local residents and landowners successfully forced Shell Oil to halt construction on an illegally-approved pipeline through their land. The battle to stop Shell Oil went on for over five years as people risked their lives and even were thrown in jail for standing by what they believed in. Narrated by Robert Redford.
