A portrait of a family living an intentional life. In a world of climate change and environmental challenges, two sisters, Anna and Emma and their companions, the California Condors, stand out as a beacon of hope. Their father, Chris Parish is the director of the Condor Project for the Peregrine Fund at Vermillion Cliffs. Their mother, Ellen Parish is a teacher and leader for the organization Roots and Shoots, founded by Jane Goodall. Together, the family work together to save and reintroduce the Californian condors back in to the wild
Learning of and from the condors, as well as their parents, Anna and Emmas lives are unique in their growing understanding that if we do not take care of the life surrounding us, we will in the end face the possibility if our own extinction. The California Condors have shown us the very beauty of life itself. As long as they soar the sky, there will always be a hope for the future.

Siblings Anna and Emma Parish have been exposed to nature and wildlife since infancy, thanks to their environmentally aware parents. Their father, Chris, is director of the Peregrine Fund at Vermillion Cliffs, in Arizona, and his primary work is helping to recover and track California condors, a species that was nearly extinct some years ago. This beautifully filmed documentary shows the foursome in their rustic home and outdoors, where they observe, track, and band California condors, the largest flying land bird in North America. The huge black birds, sporting immense wings, pink heads, and red eyes, are seen in flight and roosting. All Parish family members express their feelings about wildlife, ecology, and personal choices (Our lifestyle suits our beliefs about the environment. We live with intention in everything we do.).
Background banjo music complements this 2013 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Childrens Video selection.

School Library Journal August 2012 Viewers will be captivated by this charming and gorgeously photographed look at the llife of an environmental biologist and his family as they work to save the California Condor. Chris Parrish is the director of the Condor Project for the Peregrine Fund at Vermilion Cliffs National Park in Arizona, and his wife Ellen, is a teacher for Roots and Shoots, and organization founded by Jane Goodall. They home school their two daughters Anna and Emma, allowing the girls to work with them in their species conservation efforts. There is no story or plot to the film, and not a lot of scientific details either. Rather, the film showcases the stunning landscapes of the Vermilion Cliffs in Arizona, and offers many breathtaking images of condors in flight, at rest, eating, and mating. The family is shown tracking the birds, taking blood samples, feeding them (not for the faint of heart, condors are scavengers and these eat dead calves), and in an emotional moment, releasing a yooung condor back into the wild. There are many images of the familt hiking, camping and riding horses, while in voice-overs they discuss living with respect for the environment. Parrish is also shown singing several songs with his guitar. This short sketch might make a nice supplemental film for an environmental studies class.
