The Burning Season

Every year, there is a burning season in Indonesia. Areas of rainforest the size of Denmark are cut down and set alight by farmers and corporations to develop palm oil plantations, destroying the habitat of critically-endangered orangutans. In a race against time and powerful economic forces, a 30 year old Australian environmental entrepreneur, Dorjee Sun, sets out to find a solution by arranging to sell carbon credits to save the forest. Everything hinges on whether all the countries of the world can agree on the wording of a new climate change protocol.
