The Xavante people of the Amazon lived happily in isolation for years until the 1940s, when white explorers entered their world and changed their lives for ever. Edited to the beat of Xavante dance, this deeply moving and beautiful film is a plea from the heart of an ancient people. Will we allow such distinct and self-sufficient cultures to survive in this age of global capitalism?
