The largest bay in the United States is dying. But the Chesapeake Bay, once brimming with life and commerce, is not dying alone. It’s taking with it a way of life for the thousands of watermen whose families have made their living on the Bay for generations. This documentary weaves two tales: the inspiring story of a family of watermen tirelessly trying to preserve their life working the waters of the Bay, and the story of a bay battered by development and pollution yet struggling to stay alive. Narrated by Sam Waterston. Directed and produced by Laura Seltzer.
