Anthropologist, Claire El-Badawy has spent the last ten years of her life fruitlessly applying for grants for an expedition into the dark jungles of the Amazon. Her objective is to prove her theory of the Trans-Atlantic connection between Africa and South America that existed five thousand years ago.

Reenergized and armed with this startling find, she wins over the foundation’s funding arm and the support of the university’s department.

Owen Macleod’s life has been one long trek after another guiding tourist and giving aid to the indigenous people of the forest against the mining companies since his son died needlessly of malaria ten years ago. With his wife having left him and parents deceased, his only family now is the vibrant people along the river and his tramping partner, Manny. When Owen hears of an opportunity up north in America to break free of the tourist trade, he jumps at it.
In a chain of events, the headstrong anthropologist and the wanderlust tramping guide are thrown together in pursuit of their own dreams. Neither of them are quite prepared for what they will find hidden beyond the veiled depths of the forest nor do they see the danger coming at them from a rampaging lieutenant of a ruthless cartel that is expanding its empire into the vibrant and awesome world of the Amazon.
