Synopsis
Based on a true story. Deep in the equatorial forest, one ancient tribe remains: the Bayaka pygmy people of Central Africa, among the last hunter-gatherers on earth. Bayaka are known for their acute hearing. When Sataka hears a new, menacing sound, he uses magic to call 'Big Ear,' his friend Larry, back from New York. Larry returns home to the village of Yamondo - unaware he is bringing trouble with him.
