Where the Yellowstone Goes follows fishing guide Robert Hawkins and his small crew as they travel the Yellowstone River, the longest free flowing river in the contiguous United States. Director Hunter Weeks (10 MPH, Ride the Divide) illustrates the lives of various locals living in cities and dwindling towns alongside the Yellowstone, while exploring the history and controversies of the famous watershed. The film has been called "joyous to funny to heartbreaking" by the Huffington Post.
