“L’enfer est plein de bonnes volontés et désirs” (Hell is full of good intentions and desires) – Saint Bernard of Clairvaux
It’s estimated that nearly 80,000 acres of South American rain-forest are destroyed every day. This rampant destruction also brings about the loss of many thousands of animal and insect species every year. It has been a long time crusade for many an activist to stop this devastating destruction, but it continues on to this day.
Now a new group of young student activists wish to lend their efforts to the cause, as many have before them. They travel to The Amazon and protest a logging company that is aiding in the rapid destruction of the once vast Amazonian ecosystem. Using modern technologies, their protesting goes viral. Events reach a fever pitch when one of the protester is nearly killed by a corporate manager from the logging company.
With the possibility of bodily harm and even death looming, the activists decide to make their way home. However, while their plane is in the air over the Amazon, the plane’s engine critically fails and they crash down into the rain-forest. Those who survive the crash will soon meet the indigenous residents of the area. They will also learn that no good deed goes without severe and brutal punishment.
