River of Renewal follows Jack Kohler, a Yurok/Karuk Indian, on a journey of self-discovery in the land of his ancestors. Jack learns about the traditions of his people and their struggles to defend tribal rights and restore the wild salmon of the Klamath River Basin.

River of Renewal documents eight years of protest and acts of civil disobedience as Indian tribes, farmers, and commercial fishermen defend their ways of life. The film witnesses a remarkable turnaround. Politically polarized stakeholders and government agencies overcome bitter divisions in reaching a consensus about the future - a future that could bring the largest dam removal/river restoration project in history.
