300,000 acres of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in Northern New Mexico are burning. A state of emergency has been declared. The high mountain desert is thirsty and these are perilous times for both people and wildlife.

Our story takes place at the intersection of predator and prey, fire and regeneration, survival and hope.
