The Andes and Amazon collide in a wilderness teeming with biodiversity, natural resources and the indigenous Waorani people. Despite a UNESCO world heritage site designation, nothing endemic to Yasuni National Park is safe from rapacious outsiders. A conflict rages that has pitted biodiversity and human rights against the extractive industries intent on dismantling Yasuni. The film journeys over 1500 miles to explore the megafauna and Waorani communities entrenched in the heart of this social, political, environmental and human rights drama. Directed and produced by Ryan P. Killackey.
