An indigenous child and a magic leaf are the only hope to save the Tree of Life and the forest from destruction. She takes lessons from her tribe’s shaman and carries the jaguar’s strength with her. With her little friend, an ocelot, she must cross a burning forest and face terrible machines to succeed.
