Why should you adapt this book into a TV series? 

In an isolated valley in Central America, shortly after the assassination of their mother, an activist for the cause of the Lenchuas Indians, three sisters find themselves confronted with the construction of a dam which imposes political stakes on the land of their ancestors, and the ecosystem hazards of a “green” modernity. Inspired by real events, this powerful and timely family drama explores the economic, environmental and political impacts of large-scale development on local and Indigenous communities and the devastating effects on everyone involved. This book makes for a stunning adaptation of a choral drama about a pressing social issue in the vein of ‘The Inside Game.’

What’s the story ?

In an isolated valley in Central America, one year after the assassination of their mother Suyapa, a militant ecologist and defender of the native Lenchua people, three sisters have to face the construction of a hydroelectric dam on the land of their ancestors.
