From the heart of the Amazon jungle comes a three-part series examining the strides being made to save the world's most endangered rainforest.

1. Raids in the Rainforest. The first film follows Brazil's youngest national park director as she declares war on the drug gangs, logging mafia and illegal fishing threatening the Amazon Rainforest.

2. The Justice Boat. To the Brazilian state many of the people who live on the Amazon are invisible. They have no access to health care, social services or the justice system. But one woman, Judge Sueli Pini, is changing that. She delivers justice and healthcare by boat.

3. The Internet Indians. The Ashaninka tribe live in a region of the Amazon Rainforest rich in tropical wood. Their land has been targeted by illegal logging gangs, who have killed and threatened villagers. Now the tribe is fighting back and the internet is their weapon.
