When Sister Dorothy Stang arrived in the Brazilian Amazon, it was mostly forest. She loved walking in the shadows beneath the towering canopy, where the air was thick and musky with the scent of jungle. She sensed the presence of God there. 30 years later, the forest is vanishing. Now, riding her motorcycle and camping in the jungle, this unconventional nun is headed to Boa Esperança (Good Hope) to meet with a group of peasant farmers working to prove that farming and rainforest preservation can go hand in hand.

But Sister Dorothy has made some powerful enemies, and there is a bounty on her head. She knows this, but she does not know that today she is being followed.
