About the film:
On December 4, 2017, President Trump declared a drastic reduction of Utah’s Bears Ears and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monuments. This is the largest elimination of protected land in American history, and the President had made his decision without ever stepping foot there.
On January 13, 2018, a group outdoor athletes and creatives ran 250 miles across both monuments in a single weekend to see for themselves what would be left protected.
Now more than ever they believe in celebrating the things that unite everyone. The run was about finding commonalities in the midst of a divisive political landscape and standing in coalescence— tribal members, athletes, dirtbags — for the public lands. They hope their footsteps carry a message: wild places are worth protecting, and sometimes the first step in doing that is to take another.
