Film Synopsis:

In Sarawak, “the ones who live upstream” are the first affected by the deforestation. The Penan, once a nomadic community, are caught today in the eye of the storm : how to go on living when the landscape, which brought meaning to existence, disappears and with it the language, the customs and the spirits ?

The film, lead by the songs of those who have refused to give in, tells about the intimate interweaving of an older bittersweet way of life and the struggle which rages in the shadows of the big trees. It drawns the lines of resistance of the ones caught in such deadly fight.
