Deep in the lush and dangerous rain forests of Peru, Alexandra Pace
and her team search determinedly for a cure for deadly diseases. One
strain of the disease has already begun the process of ravaging
Alexandra’s own mind and body. Finding a cure is the only hope for her
and for her daughter, who has almost certainly inherited the same
Alex believes she is searching for a needle in a
haystack until she meets Michael Kenway, a British doctor who lost his
wife when “mad cow disease” ravaged Britain in the 1990’s. He presents
her with an incredible story — a patient suffering from the disease was
cured by a mythical “healing tribe” living deep in the Amazon jungle.
Reluctantly placing her faith in Michael, who is entirely too religious
for her comfort, Alexandra and her team seek out an unreached indigenous
group who may hold the cure not only for Alex, but also for the world.
