    The Film

    Against the backdrop of southwest Montana, ranchers must face the challenges of living with Yellowstone's roaming wolf packs as well as encroaching development. Wolves in Paradise is a tale of survival and follows the growth of a surprising alliance between traditional enemies — livestock growers and conservationists — who strive for common ground to protect the open spaces from developers.
