Trailer for a 34 minute documentary that was filmed in Oudomxay province in Northern Laos (Asia). With the help of a local farmer's association, poor rice farmers make bee hives to attract local forest bees and bring them near their homes. The forest honey is excellent food but is also a medicine. Since the bees return to the forest in the rainy season, it is vital that the villages have a healthy forest nearby. In this way, bees become crucial partners in forest conservation.
