Set in Mozambique, filmmaker Jessica Yu’s main character, Tonga Torcida, lives on Mount Gorongosa and wants nothing more than to become a tour guide at the Gorongosa National Park, where 90 percent of the animal population has been wiped out by warfare.

His fortuitous meeting with a humanitarian spurs Torcida’s education about the environment. He learns about the ecosystem’s dependence on everything in it — big and small. But he also learns about the human role in the environmental destruction occurring in the park and the difficulties of getting people to change.
