Reporter Aidan Hartley and director Katherine Churcher travel to Colombia to investigate how the country's native inhabitants have become caught in the crossfire of a 46-year-long civil war.

In the Cauca region they meet the Nasa people, who are suffering a campaign of murders, death threats and intimidation because international mining companies want to drive them off their land in order to extract vast reserves of gold. Their struggle to keep their land underlines how, despite the government's claim that it is destroying the rebel threat, the war is driving the country's indigenous tribes to the brink of extinction.
