Filmmaker Andrea Tonacci blends documentary elements with expressive visual storytelling in this study of the native peoples of Brazil in the 21st century. Carapiru is a member of one of Brazil's remaining Indian tribes, living in harmony with nature and making wise use of the local flora and fauna. But Carapiru is suddenly forced to fend for himself under unfamiliar circumstances when an unexpected attack leaves the rest of his family dead and their village destroyed. Carapiru flees into the nearby rain forest, and builds a new life for himself with the help some sympathetic settlers. However, after rebuilding his life Carapiru is uprooted once again when well-meaning government agents relocate him to the village he was forced to abandon on the promise that it has been restored to its pristine state.
Carapirú is a nomadic Brazilian who escapes from an attack conducted by farmers against his village. For 10 years he wanders the Brazilian sierras alone until he is captured 2000 km from his home and brought to Brasilia. There, he is reunited with his son, who takes his father back to their village. However, after years of interaction with contemporary urban centres of Brazil, Carapirú finds it difficult to reconnect with his nomadic lifestyle.
