A stirring film about the wanton destruction of the Amazon rain forest and the plight of the area's indigenous people. When the sacred hucti eagle that protects his village disappears, a young boy and his grandfather set out to find a new guardian. Traveling by canoe along the Amazon, they meet Indians from neighboring tribes (including rock star Sting). Though captivated by his first glimpse of life beyond his village, the boy quickly learns of the danger to the rain forest and the world.
