The documentary profiles the life of Liberian activist Silas Siakor, a tireless crusader against illegal logging and a symbol of resistance for a new generation. Siakor trains a network of citizen reporters, using smart phones with apps, to expose land grabs and corruption in West Africa. He also reveals ties between President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s relatives and logging interests.
