For over 30 years, residents of the small town of Brisbane, CA, just south of San Francisco, have fought to save rare butterflies on private land planned for luxury housing on San Bruno mountain. This epic battle between private property rights and the survival of a species has resulted in a major shift in national environmental policy.

Bay Area filmmaker Gail Mallimson tells the story of this struggle both past and present, through the eyes of a life-long resident of Brisbane who is determined to save the last population of these butterflies before they are gone forever.
