Branded a 'terrorist' at an early age by the government of Chile, Pascual Pichun is a man on a mission.

He is a symbol of the indigenous Mapuche resistance movement, which is trying to protect and reclaim its ancestral lands from the government and foreign companies.

The movement is accused of attacks on forestry company property, destroying bulldozers and burning down a helicopter.

With exclusive access to the resistance movement, this film follows Pascual as he investigates abuses against the Mapuche and records the increasingly tense situation.
