Eighty percent of the world's eastern gorillas live in Kahuzi-Biega National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. This film embarks on a dangerous journey to investigate the main threats facing these great apes today – a journey that takes us deep into the heart of the world's most perilous National Park. The eastern gorilla's last stand is within a war zone. This is real ‘gorilla warfare', where 15,000 armed miners supplying the international tin market have invaded the Eastern gorilla's last remaining refuge. Coming under fire on a dangerous night mission with the United Nations soldiers trying to protect the Park from armed militias, the filmmakers profile the heroic champions risking their lives to save those of Africa's gorillas.
