Short movie documentary of a trip of few days deep down the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest during the rain season. The film is based in a tiny village (about 20 people living there) called "5 de Julio", in the Lagunas Region.

The rain was incredibly abundant and there was no land where to walk,  the water level rose above the stilt houses, therefore we were sleeping on the top of tables and we had to move around the forest through canoas.

Following the spanish colonization, the community lost the connection with the ancient wisdom and the others free indigenous population of the forest, but luckily managed to preserve the old language, which is still taught in school.
