Fellowship Project: Pipeline examines what happens in rural Buckingham County, Virginia as two unique groups come together to fight a natural gas pipeline planned for construction near their homes. It explores the interaction between an African-American Christian community that traces its roots to the slaves of a local plantation, and a spiritual temple complex founded and built in the 1980s by an Indian spiritual master. Wariness gives way to friendship as the two groups align to stop the pipeline.
