The Pinnacle and the Poet tells the story of a passionate seven-year struggle to save a mountain from private development and to save a rural lifestyle from extinction. The film explores poet Richard Sommer's decision to "get involved." It follows his efforts to rally both deeply rooted local people and urban come-latelies to his cause and it shows how he and other members of the Association for the Conservation of Pinnacle Mountain have won allies far beyond their own rural community in southern Quebec. It is a story that is specific and yet universal, as conservationists around the world wage increasingly bitter fights to preserve what remains of our natural environment.
