Synopsis
The story takes place on Brazil's violent border with Paraguay - the heart of Brazilian agribusiness. The team closely follows the growth of ruralist political power and its close ties to the Bolsonaro government. At the same time, it portrays the intimacy of indigenous female resistance - with its communal ideals and its struggle for the planet. The process recorded by the documentary culminates with the imminent loss of indigenous constitutional rights thanks to the political power of agribusiness.
