The film captures director Eryk Rocha as he embarks on a visually stunning 14,000km journey through the Amazon rainforest in Brazil, Peru and Bolivia, meeting native indigenous tribes along the way, and interviewing them and other communities on their relationship to their country, government and mother-land. Rocha encounters the reality of people historically cut-off from the political process of their own country, and for the first time are seeking to participate in the outcome of their own fate.
