Bitaté is nineteen years old when he is elected leader of his tribe and is faced with a difficult task. The small, shrinking Indigenous Uru-eu-wau-wau people of the Amazon are being threatened by loggers and land grabbers. Bitaté wants to fend off the wave of attacks by taking radical measures: together with environmental activist and longtime ally Neidinha, he sets up patrols and uses drones to track down illegal settlers. But in the Brazilian Amazon, an area the size of California has already been irrevocably destroyed in recent decades. And even now, Brazilian politics are against them. Bitaté is desperate – his land, his culture and his tribe’s right to exist are at stake.
