Rhinos have been poached for years because of the high price of their horns on the black market. These endangered species are on the verge of extinction if things don’t change.
This documentary is based on people who have made the choice to dedicate their lives, sometimes even putting them in danger, to preserve these animals. In this film you will follow these former military men and women, these veterans, in their daily lives in South Africa. They will tell you why they made this choice of life, what are the stakes of the problem, what is their job in the field and what are the links woven with the local population.
