As the U.S. prepares to enter the Korean War in 1950, nine Quaker families from rural Fairhope, Alabama embark on a journey to emigrate to Costa Rica, a country that has just abolished its army. The film follows them to the mountaintop village they named Monteverde and documents their environmental stewardship, their creation of the largest cloud-forest reserve in Central America, their pioneering work on ecotourism, and their early clarion calls to fight climate change. Their legacy of activism is passed down to succeeding generations.
