Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman and last survivor of his people, and two scientists work together over the course of 40 years to search the Amazon for a sacred healing plant.

It's a while since anyone went up a big river with a camera and a big idea, but it never gets old... When the explorers come ashore, in either time frame, we get a sense of chaos, bloodshed, decay and distress. Some of this has been done in the name of God, but God is a long time gone. It's just madness and greed and death now, following in the wake of "civilisation".
