The story of the relationship between Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman, the last survivor of his tribe, and two European scientists who work together over 40 years to locate a secret healing plant. The breath-taking cinematography and dreamlike pace of the film do not overshadow the theme of conflict between an ancient civilisation and modern western economic pressures.
