Episode Summary

Oil & Water
The story of two young men, one from Ecuador and the other from Massachusetts, and the future of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Hugo was sent to the U.S. to become educated so that he could lead his tribe, the Cofan, whose way of life is threatened. Oil waste pollutes their ancestral lands; and an oil deposit beneath their village could mean its end.
