War photojournalist Kate Brooks turned her interest from uncovering crimes committed against human beings to capturing the systematic slaughter of animals. She even visited Dvůr Králové in the Czech Republic.

Poachers every year kill thousands of African elephants and rhinoceroses. Their ivory and horns are in high demand, especially on Asian markets. The illegal trade has brought some species to the brink of extinction. This documentary uncovers an international network that carries ivory from poachers and smugglers, with the support of terrorist organisations, to the target markets, in spite of international agreements and bans. It also shows the sustained efforts of nature conservationists, nature reserve administrators and scientists who, despite declining odds, are fighting for the lives of animals facing extinction. The result is an emotional wakeup call for the international community to focus its attention on the fate of these creatures.
