Mark Lewis (Cane Toads: An Unnatural History) explores one of Australia's greatest environmental catastrophes as he follows the unstoppable march of the Cane Toad. Despised by many, venerated by some, the toad has occupied a nation's consciousness achieving both cult and criminal status. Despite its international origin, the Cane Toad has become uniquely Australian. Yet, for a world wrestling with the idea that we have irretrievably altered our own ecosystem, its story holds universal relevance. Featuring a host of engaging characters as well as thousands of toads, Cane Toads: The Conquest, is a humorous yet thought-provoking journey into the issue of invasive species, and is without doubt one of the most unusual and surprising films of the year.
