"We’re in the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland. This documentary feature immerses you in the wettest part of the driest continent on earth, a tiny patch of emerald green. A World Heritage area. We’re walking through the landscape with people collaborating on interconnected projects – looking after tree kangaroos whose fragmented forest habitat needs re connecting, finding seeds for propagation, replanting great tracts of rain forest, and protecting the whole from a tiny but deadly invader – the yellow crazy ant.
How are people doing this work and what drives them? How do they remain hopeful and passionate in the context of global climate disruption?
