This film traces the history leading up to the collapse of cod stocks off Newfoundland leading to the calling for a moratorium on the cod fishery. It presents the key players in this complex and tragic story, focussing on those who are now trying to come to grips with an uncertain future. In trying to attain economic success, we must recognize that there are limits to how we can exploit nature's delicate ecosystems. National Film Board (NFB).
