Three investigative journalists and Pete Bethune seek the truth about who was behind the attacks as they unravel the connections between corruption, organised crime and violence in one of the most dangerous cities on the Amazon.
Led by journalist and Professor of criminology, Irishman Donal MacIntyre with his two Brazilian based media associates, as they join the film crew for 8 weeks in various locations on the Amazon in search of the truth.
The Garden of Evil explores the possibility that the attacks might have been connected to powerful criminal organisations involved in lucrative but highly illegal logging and the trafficking of endangered animals.
