In the depths of eastern Congo lies Virunga National Park, one of the most biodiverse places in the world and home to the last of the mountain gorillas. In this environment, an embattled team of park rangers (including an ex-child soldier, a caretaker of orphan gorillas, and a Belgian conservationist) protect this UNESCO World Heritage Site from armed militia, poachers, and the dark forces struggling to control the Congo’s rich natural resources. When the M23 rebel group declares war in May 2012, a new conflict threatens the lives of everyone and everything they’ve worked so hard to protect. 2014, UK/Congo, 90 minutes.
