In 1973, a desperate America, starved by an OPEC embargo, began construction on an 800-mile lifeline for its insatiable oil hunger.

  • Speak to survivors of the brutality which claimed nearly a million lives.
  • Government officials and international politicians reflect on the genocide and its aftermath.
  • Travel to the war-ravaged nation to see what it is like today.

We'll examine this technological triumph, built over impenetrable mountains and tundra, where temperatures drop to 75° below zero. We also study its impact on a fragile ecological system.
