IMDB: Rodents of Unusual Size 



The fragile wetlands of Louisiana are under relentless attack by legions of 20-pound semi-aquatic invasive rodents known as the nutria, which have greatly accelerated coastal erosion and made the bayou much more vulnerable to hurricanes. Keeping the giant swamp rats at bay is a group of colorful and off-beat residents, who are in the midst of defending their land, culture, and way-of-life. Invasive species, environmental issues, and a unique group of people are colliding at the edge of the world in an attempt to restore and protect coastal Louisiana before it disappears.


From the award-winning team that brought you Plagues and Pleasures of the Salton Sea, Every Day Sunshine & The Story of Fishbone, which was presented at Sundance, AFI Film Festival, SXSW, and Washington, DC Independent Film Festival.
