Tired of filming TV commercials, two well-intentioned Los Angeles "camera guys" decide to do their part for the environment by exposing the villains responsible for destroying the rainforests. Along the way they meet a range of paradoxical characters including poor people who cut down forests to survive, environmentalists trying to import an "ecological" sawmill, timber companies campaigning for reforestation, and Hollywood producers who use rainforest plywood to build their sets.

Through their humorous adventures and irreverent style, the filmmakers illuminate a serious subject in an entertaining way.
