The Salt Creek Tiger Beetle may be extinct by the time you're reading this. Down to only three populations in Lincoln, Nebraska, this insect seems like it's surely disappearing. Loss of habitat is to blame and developers continue to eye the last remaining pieces of saline wetland. How do you go about saving a tiny insect that we barely understand and why does it matter? Injected with surprising musical sequences this documentary explores the importance of one almost-extinct beetle and it's place in the world.
