THE ILLUSION OF ABUNDANCE

Despite a deeply unbalanced game, Bertha, Carolina and Máxima share a common goal: they are leading today's fight against modern corporate conquistadors. 

Whereas governments and corporations are trapped in a global race to get the cheapest raw materials, these three women land defenders narrate a story of tireless courage: How to continue fighting to protect nature when their life is at risk? When police repression, corporate harassment, injuries or even death threats are part of their daily life?

THE ILLUSION OF ABUNDANCE is not only a film about those who pay the high price of ‘development’, it is above all a film about the globalization of their environmental resistance and their drive to hunt down transnational corporations wherever they hide. Risking their life to protect our planet.
