Twenty-Five miles from town, a million miles from mainstream society, a loose-knit community of eco-pioneers, teenage runaways, war veterans and drop-outs, live on the fringe and off the grid, struggling to survive with little food, less water and no electricity, as they cling to their unique vision of the American dream.

"An insightful study of an alternative American lifestyle" The Stulbergs,
whose film's stunning look is a combination of good cinematography and a majestic New Mexican landscape, achieved marvelous access to what has to
be a very closed and insular community, given where and how the inhabitants choose to live. The various characters come to vivid life.

this review is from: Off the Grid: Life On The Mesa (ON DEMAND)
This is a window into the the most extreme version of 'alternative lifestyles' I have ever seen. I would have never guessed that something like this existed in the states. With a shortage on almost everything essential (including sanity) the people on the Mesa miraculously make it year to year. A great glimpse into true alternative.
