The field of anthropology goes under the magnifying glass in this investigation of the seminal research on Yanomami Indians. In the 1960s and '70s, a large number of anthropologists filed into the Amazon Basin to observe this virgin society untouched by modern life. Thirty years later, the events surrounding this infiltration have become a scandalous tale of academic ethics and infighting.
