Virunga National Park is located in the forested depths of eastern Congo. The park is one of the most bio-diverse places on Earth and home to the planet’s last remaining mountain gorillas. In this wild environment, a small team of park rangers - including an ex-child soldier turned ranger; a caretaker of orphan gorillas and a dedicated conservationist who's a member of the Belgian royal family - protect this UNESCO world heritage site from armed militia, poachers and the dark forces struggling to control Congo's rich natural resources.

When the newly formed M23 rebel group declares war, a new conflict threatens the lives and stability of everyone and everything they've worked so hard to protect, with the filmmakers and the film’s participants caught in the crossfire.
