America Reframed

Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea | Promo

Preview: Season 2 Episode 9 | 30s

Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea offers an offbeat portrait of the people who populate the shores of the once "California Riviera," which is now considered one of America's worst ecological disasters. It is an epic tale of real estate ventures and failed boomtowns, inner-city gangs fleeing to small town America, and the subjective notion of success and failure amidst the ruins of the past.
