Three women share a common goal: Carolina, Bertha and Maxima are leading today’s fight against modern conquistadors. Whereas governments and corporations, trapped in a global race towards unlimited growth, need to get the cheapest raw materials, these three women tell us a story of tireless courage – how to keep fighting to protect nature when your life is at risk and when police repression, corporate harassment, injuries or even death threats are part of your daily routine.
