In the last decades of the twentieth century the destruction of the Indonesian rainforest accelerated. This is the story of a vast project to build a pulp mill in the pristine heart of Borneo. John Ennis arrives in Jakarta, on behalf of the consortium formed to promote the project, where he discovers an unexpectedly new world. Assigned to head the development by Antoine Brodzski the promoter and a Scandinavian multinational, he is plunged into a conflict of financial and political interests in Suharto's Indonesia, where dollars are more important than the obliteration of huge swaths of Borneo's primary forests, its unique wildlife and the destruction to be wreaked on the habitat of the indigenous peoples.
