It is an inspiring story of resistance and triumph in the Brazilian forest, where War on Want partner organisztion MIQCB supports the 300,000 women who make their living from the nuts. The film provides a rare and intimate look at this remote community of women, whose ecologically sound way of life is under threat, both from the Brazilian government and big business moving in.
