In the Yasuni Biosphere of the Ecuadorian Amazon, the world’s most biodiverse forest, a conflict rages. It’s a real-life Avatar story: once under siege by missionaries seeking to civilize them, the Waorani now battle industry operatives and their own government in a fight to survive. In 2016, Yasuni hangs on the edge of collapse.
Together with his native friend Otobo, director Ryan Killackey embarks on an expedition to support the claim that Yasuni is truly mega-diverse. However, as oil companies encroach and violations of human rights run rampant, the Waorani struggle to assimilate as their forest Eden is destroyed, all for the oil that lies beneath Yasuni.
