This observational documentary follows communities on the frontlines of an intensifying environmental conflict in Nicaragua: the Rama Indigenous people and the Afro-descendant Kriol community, who are fighting to stop illegal cattle ranchers from destroying the virgin rainforests of the Indio Maíz Biological Reserve. Armando John, a quiet but brave young man, Margarito, a philosophical father of six, and Rupert Allen Clair Duncan, a leader within the territory, form part of a Forest Ranger squad. While on an expedition to confront illegal ranchers, they discover that a well-connected rancher has deforested 400 acres and moved in 80 young bulls, and launch a coordinated campaign to remove him.
