Malia has had a privileged upbringing in Indonesia, but now her Mother wants to return to her own family on the other side of the world. But how can Malia keep fighting for Indonesia’s precious rainforests and wildlife if she’s not there? Ari feels lucky to be living in the city and going to a school, especially as it meant his cousin missed out. It does mean long hours working at his uncle’s restaurant, and he worries about Ginger Juice, his uncle’s orangutan who lives in a too small cage, that is clearly impacting her, but what can he do?
