Scrapper: An Explosive Documentary

Synopsis from the Scrapper Website:

Bombarded day and night by U.S. and British fighter pilots, the Chocolate Mountain Bombing range in California’s low desert stands on the cutting edge of America’s global war on terror. Marines and Navy Seals also train amidst the ashen craters on the eve of foreign deployments.

But with each lull in the bombing and strafing shadowy groups of scrappers infiltrate this no-man’s land in Mad Max-like trucks and dune buggies, to scrape together a desperate existence scavenging the impact areas.
