Three Ecuadorian women and a scientific expedition work together to stop government-sponsored mega-mining before it destroys one of the most biodiverse rainforests on the planet.
The Ecuadorian government expanded—by 300%—the amount of land available for mega-mining. This exposes huge swaths of the country’s last remaining, most endangered rainforests to the mercy of aggressive multinational mining companies. Three women—an indigenous leader, a rural farmer, and an environmental activist—join forces with a devoted team of scientists that is documenting endangered species before they’re destroyed. United by their collective goal to save Ecuador’s lands and indigenous communities from obliteration, this internationally produced feature-length documentary spotlights the agonizing conflicts Ecuador’s rural and indigenous communities face when choosing between nature, legacy, and money.
