Synopsis

A Bolivian park ranger and a young Hong Kongese journalist risk their lives to go undercover and investigate a new, deadly jaguar trade that’s sweeping South America. Along the way, they grapple with questions of empathy, responsibility and bridging a cultural gap to prevent the jaguar trade from spiraling out of control.

Shuttling between the breathtaking biodiversity of Madidi National Park in Bolivia and the tense China-Myanmar border, this film juxtaposes the tranquility and splendor of the jungle against the small-minded, sadistic nature of man, its destroyer.
