Power Struggle chronicles the grassroots political battle in Vermont to close the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant. Seven years in the making, this film documents a huge environmental issue that has affected Vermont, arguing that it will have long-lasting repercussions for the state for decades to come, as the high-level nuclear waste will remain indefinitely on the banks of the Connecticut River. Power Struggle is also a quintessential story about grassroots activism and participatory democracy in Vermont. ~OY
