One peaceful day for the farmers in the summer of 2009, the Korean government announced the master plan for the “4 Major Rivers Project”. The government suddenly announced that organic agriculture severely polluted the water. The “4 Major Rivers Project” was a mega-sized national project by the Lee Myung Bak Administration to “renovate” the 4 major rivers in Korea to construct the “Korean Peninsula Great Canal”. The project constructs 16 dams in the rivers and expropriates farming lands and riverbeds to build bicycle roads and parks. The Paldang “Dumulmeori” organic farming area, known as the hub of Korean organic farming, was to be included as part of the 4 Rivers Project. This film is about the 40 months of struggle by organic farmers against the 4 Major Rivers Project.
