"Charming...soft-pedaled lesson in conflict resolution." Booklist
The dirt flies in this film as neighboring gophers respond to each other with anger and revenge. By sundown, the retaliatory rodents have all but obliterated both their homes. Is there any way they can put the pieces back together?

WHEN THE DUST SETTLES tackles conflict in lively, humorous and provocative ways. It shows that amidst the chaos that conflicts create, there are still paths to reconciliation.

This film is part of the ShowPeace series of animated films without words, designed as flexible tools to explore conflict resolution. Young children to senior executives can identify with the characters, and gain insight on how to deal creatively with conflict and anger at school, at home, in the workplace and in their communities.
