In 2015, a mega-development is poised to engulf a small Mexican fishing village with a vast hotel/condo complex called Tres Santos. Although marketed to wealthy Americans as “green” and “mindful,” Tres Santos threatens to transform and overwhelm the idiosyncratic desert town in Baja California, quadrupling its population and causing irreversible damage. Not only will fishermen be forced off the beach they’ve used for generations, but the developers will drain an already diminished aquifer, taking drinking water from a town where many residents have little or no access. “Patrimonio” tells a unique and inspiring story of resistance, a real-life tale about feisty fishermen who dare to stare down an American corporate Goliath by confronting their own government, denouncing corruption, demanding respect, and refusing to blink first.
