Two nomadic Indians of the Piripkura tribe survive surrounded by farms and loggers in a protected area in the middle of the Amazon Forest.

A National Indian Foundation (FUNAI) public servant called Jair Candor has been following their progress since 1989.

He conducts periodic expeditions, many of them accompanied by Rita – a third Piripkura survivor – monitoring their presence in the forest in order to prevent that area from being taken over.

The survivors Packyî and Tamandua live in the forest with little more than a machete, a dull axe and a torch to assist them.
