FilmRITUAL enters the territory of Amazonian Indians. If they fall ill they are helped by the spirit of inherited tradition, knowledge of the primeval forest and magic rituals. The people of the Katukina tribe swallow the secretions of the kambo frog, liana and coca infusions to prevent illness. The film introduces the methods of natural medicine while asking the essential question whether the herbs would help if their use was deprived of its spiritual dimension.
