A boat makes landfall on an island in western Papua New Guinea. Nature here is vast, majestic. Cedric, the leader, immediately notices a cliff face covered with abstract paintings. While the others set up their equipment, he follows a trail of clues, and a recurring hand motif, to figure out who lives on this lonely island. The group goes exploring. They catch glimpses of exotic animals in a cave and in a mangrove. Are there any humans here at all? Cedric had seen a bearded man’s face painted on the wall and leads the team in the search for people. Into the heart of the jungle, five explorers in a canoe discover an astonishing tribe of hunter-gatherers: the Korowai.
