STROOP: JOURNEY INTO THE RHINO HORN WAR

Two first-time filmmakers stop their lives to find out why rhinos are killed for their horns. After six months on the project, the women quickly immerse themselves in a world that is much bigger and more dangerous than they thought, and only emerged from their odyssey four years later. A four-year investigation into the poaching crisis in South Africa included tackling some of the worst criminal networks. And next to the rangers in the rhino sanctuaries in South Africa, the filmmakers move directly into the line of fire. Then to Asia, where Stroop asks if there is any basis for the horn's popularity as a cancer cure? This epic investigation reveals a unique panorama of the global rhino trade.
