"The Green Inferno" centers around Justine, a young college student who becomes passionate about environmental activism. When she joins a group of like-minded activists led by Alejandro, they plan a trip to the Amazon rainforest to protest against a corporation engaged in deforestation.
After arriving in the remote village, the group stages a protest and manages to temporarily halt the deforestation operation. However, their triumph is short-lived when their plane crashes on their way back to civilization. Stranded deep in the jungle, they encounter a cannibalistic tribe known as the People of the Mist.
Captured and held captive by the tribe, the activists are subjected to gruesome rituals and brutal acts of violence. They quickly realize that they are not just fighting to survive the dangers of the jungle, but also the sadistic practices of the tribe, who see them as a source of food.
As their situation becomes increasingly dire, the surviving members of the group must confront their own fears, fight back against their captors, and find a way to escape the Green Inferno before they become the tribe's next meal.
"The Green Inferno" is known for its intense and graphic scenes, exploring themes of survival, cultural clash, and the consequences of well-intentioned activism. It serves as a cautionary tale about the horrors that can lurk in unexplored territories and the price that can be paid for good intentions in unfamiliar and dangerous environments.
