A one-of-a-kind ethnographic documentary about the three last survivors of the tribe of Pirikpura, an indigenous Amazon population that was almost entirely exterminated during the unofficial war for the exploitation of the tropical forest. The two of them guard a protected area with a small blind ax and a torch lit for the last time in 1998, yet they manage to raise awareness on their existence way beyond the borders of their land.
