The People of the Rainforest

  • Deep in the Amazon rainforest, a native tribe comes across the bulldozers of a deforestation company. The men from the company kill all the tribe, save for two sisters. They are brought to a village to learn a new language, wear clothes, go to school… The youngest adapts to her new life, but her sister has only one thing in mind, go back to the forest.
