Part 2: What was once the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River disappeared more than 100 years ago due to water diversion and land reclamation for agriculture. As we meet a series of people living in and around the old lakebed, Tulare – The Phantom Lake raises sometimes unsettling, unresolved questions about what was gained and what was lost in the process.

The Valley and the Lake is a four-part Film Odyssey focused on water issues, conflicts and hopes in California’s Central Valley, the breadbasket of the world and also the most human altered landscape on the planet.
