In this tense and immersive tour de force, audiences are taken directly into the line of fire between powerful, opposing Peruvian leaders who will stop at nothing to keep their respective goals intact. On the one side is President Alan Garcia, who, eager to enter the world stage, begins aggressively extracting oil, minerals, and gas from untouched indigenous Amazonian land.

We began collaborating on films while we were studying at the University of Newport Wales in the United Kingdom. After graduating, we decided to continue our collaboration and asked Taira Akbar, a talented artist then working for the BBC, to join our team.
