Synopsis: Reptile specialist Schuyler Baines – “the Savior of Giant Tortoises” and the first female director of the Charles Darwin Research Station – arrives in Galápagos full of ideas and idealism. But when she becomes aware of an exploding black market that threatens to destroy the islands’ fragile ecosystem, Schuyler shuts the industry down, sparking a deadly, survival-of-the-fittest conflict with native fishermen. A bold, theatrical exploration of evolution, extinction, and the ever-present nature of Darwin’s “struggle for life.”
