Finish-Swedish company Stora Enso is planting eucalyptus trees for a pulp and paper factory. The eucalyptus trees in not good for the nature. The farmers can´t plant anything. They have problem with the water contamination in the regionen. A film about the farmers struggle for their earth. The filmmaker tries to talk with the farmers in the affected region in Southern China, but he meets only difficulty because the government protects the company reputation.
