Synopsis:

In the deepest part of the central African jungle, we coexist with the Baka Pygmies - an authentic journey back to our pre-history. The Baka continue to travel through the jungle with ember, to preserve the fire, and they continue to sharpen their teeth to better chew the meat of the prey they hunt in the jungle.

The Tibetan bee keepers have a very peculiar nomadic life. They travel pursuing flowers. In Tibet, the flowering season takes place during different months, based on the height above sea level of the lands. These bee keepers climb up and down all year long in search of pollen for their insects.

The Bahau are water nomads. They live on the islands of Sulawesi and never step foot on land. Everything they do takes place on board their small boats. It is difficult for some to walk due to the time they spend with their legs bent. We will fish for sponges and we will visit their fish farms with them.

In central Mongolia we find the Darkhad nomads. Ninety percent of the Mongol population is still nomadic. They move their camps eight times a year. We will attend their Shamanic cults and we will travel with them through the vast steppes.
