Robber barons, hippies, dim-witted academics and goofy tree-huggers battle it out at an investors' meeting for the largest lumber mill ever built. Will greed win out over wild and wonderful scenery, or will our lovely mountain state turn into a barren landscape? Everyone is coming to dinner, but someone will not be going home alive!
