Going back to ancestral territory to make an act of transmission, this is what Lucien Civette, a 60-year-old Teko Indian, wants to do going up to the Camopi river in French Guyana. 

To do so, he will be accompanied by two young Teko. The subject of the film is about not loosing a mythical and historical knowledge of these territories now without villages and, for the western spectator, to decolonize his view of Amazonian forest.
