In Borneo, “the ones who live upstream” are the first affected by deforestation. The Penan, nomadic hunters, are caught in the eye of that storm: how to go on living when one’s entire world is being taken apart, when the landscape, which brought meaning to existence, literally disappears and with it language, customs, and the spirits? The film, carried by the song of those who refuse to give in, draws the lines of resistance of each one to that deadly fight. It tells of the intimate interweaving of a sweet and secret way of life with the fight which rages in the shadow of the big trees.
