Dark and boundless, the Amazon appears to have been deserted by mankind since the beginning of time. However, scientists have been experimenting with unprecedented approaches to tropical archeology for almost a decade and are now accumulating discoveries. What did the pre-Columbian Amazon really look like? Many sites reveal an ancient occupation of the forest whose first traces date back to more than 12,000 years.

Following the work of scientists and archaeologists, this film reveals a thriving Amazonia populated by interconnected towns and villages, where men knew and mastered the tropical ecosystem. This film delves into a time where mankind and the rainforest were one.
