An island far out in the Indian Ocean is the home of the Jarawa, a tribe descending from the first humans who left Africa 70,000 years ago.
The Jarawa have refused contact with the outside world for millennia and still live in a primordial ambience. But their natural way of life is endangered by the so-called civilised world, which found out about their existence only a few years ago but is already imposing its rules.
The Jarawa are not giving up easily. They try to defend their paradise from tourism and the Indian government. For the first time ever, a film team could observe the Jarawa in their natural environment, documenting a world where freedom is real and human hearts are at ease.
