Three environmental crusaders confront murder, betrayal and their own demons and are tested like never before in a battle to save an island paradise in the Philippines.
A tourist destination and home to one of the world’s most diverse rainforests, the island of Palawan is a dangerous place for land defenders. Bobby Chan, a local environmental lawyer, leads a group of renegade land protectors who confiscate the chainsaws of illegal loggers. Up for re-election, local Mayor Nieves Rosento is the focus of a dirty campaign supported by land developers and President Rodrigo Duterte. Along with ex-illegal logger Tata, they confront murder and betrayal in their efforts to preserve this precious environment.

 Shortlisted for the Sustainable Future Award.
