"A detailed account of Newfoundland's plans for hydro-electric generating stations at Gull Island and Muskrat Falls on the Lower Churchill River in Labrador. Maps and diagramatic sequences show the projected operations of the two plants, and plans to transmit electricity across the Strait of Belle Isle to Newfoundland itself and St. John's on the far Avalon Peninsula. Footage includes scenes of life and industry in Newfoundland and views of various locations: Gull Island; Muskrat Falls; Happy Valley, Goose Bay (including shots of the phased-out U.S. Air Force Base); Grizzly Rapids; the Strait of Belle Isle; the Longe Range Mountains of the Great Northern Peninsula; Labrador City, Newfoundland; and St. John's, including an aerial shot of the city at night."
