In this true story a fatal disease leaves South American Tirio villagers with little faith in the shaman's healing. An outsider helps them understand the importance of the shaman's wisdom, and enables a Tirio boy realize his dream to become a shaman.

LeVar and enthobotanist Mark Plotkin visit this Amazon Tirio village and meet the boy from the story who has become a shaman. We learn about rain forest plants with healing qualities and find out what life is like in an Amazon village.
