After a difficult march and adventurous discovery through the heart of black Africa, deep in the jungle of Congo, we managed to find a hidden ethnic group that still lives a natural way of life. This tribe lives mostly by hunting and gathering – in the same way as thousand years ago.
The are the Jungle people of who the world thinks they don't exist ... On the way to the past, to times when the simplest things brought us happiness, the film leads us to the very beginning of the human existence.
