The incredible story of Máxima Acuña and her family, who own a small, remote plot in the Peruvian Highlands. The Acuñas rely solely on the environment for their livelihood, but their land is located directly in the path of one of the world’s largest gold-mining corporations. Faced with intimidation, violence, and criminal prosecution, we follow Máxima’s tireless fight for justice, which takes her from the Peruvian Supreme Court to the doors of the World Bank in Washington, D.C.
