SYNOPSIS

After the largest mining dam breaks in history, further dam collapses threaten millions in  Brazil. A state counsellor confronts the modus operandi of the government, while dam refugees resist the abuses of the mining companies in their threatened communities. In the nearby woods, biologists witness the deforestation for the advancement of mining in this post-colonial wasteland.
