A Few Brave People powerfully chronicles the extraordinary struggle of the local people of the Black Sea region to protect their rivers and their livelihood from a government bent on selling their heritage to private corporations. Outraged by the damage thus far, the villagers have organised themselves into local associations, filed lawsuits, shut down forestry meetings, confronted officials brought in to assess the construction plans, and fervently marched in the streets. The truth, however, of Turkeys crushing race to be a world contender in the production of electrical energy, leaves them all in the dark.
