Sixteen-year old Heidi has always dreamed of being a society photographer for the rich and famous. Instead, her first film project plunges her into a world of subterfuge as she joins a courageous group of teenage protesters committed to saving orangutans in the wild. 

An insatiable demand for palm oil is hastening the extinction of these gentle creatures that share 97% of human DNA. The group also uncovers a dubious use for palm oil end products that affects local animals. 

Employing a range of ingenious disguises and hoaxes, the teenagers risk protest after protest on behalf of ‘the ‘silent ones’ with exhilarating success. But when the police come calling at their school, has it been one stunt too many?
