Synopsis

This mystical journey takes us through the untrodden, war-locked Northwest Amazon, where we discover the secret knowledge of Cabiyari and Cubeo indigenous cultures and their insight into nature, life and medicinal and psychotropic plants.

It is a window into a forbidden zone of the Amazon, patrolled by violent factions.

With breathtaking images, millenary secrets are revealed such as the preparation of Yage ("The vine of the Gods"), pulverized coca, and curare.

These communities, besieged by the looming death of their sacred languages and cultures, must now come together to preserve their very survival.
