Alexander von Bismarck, the head of the Environmental Investigation Agency, is on a quest to unveil the corrupt and illegal timber trading practices that destroys forests all over the planet. This gripping docu-thriller follows each and every link in the chain between harvesting and marketing. It takes us through forests across the globe, in Russia, Peru, China and Romania. With the aid of hidden cameras, the American activist and his local helpers expose the endless exploitation of nature and the reality of “washed” products on the market. Will documenting the chain of unlawful activities be enough to reverse the processes of an untraceably complicated network of illegal logging?
