The Central African Republic. Here in the shade of sub-panel rainforests lives a tribe of the shortest people on Earth – the Baka pygmies. As it was hundreds of years ago, the Baka hunt for meat and gather gifts of big trees. They pray to the spirits of the forest and teach their children to respect the forest, to take from it only what is of great need. But little by little their traditional mode is changing under the pressure of the "Big World" culture and the persistent influence of one Baka family’s rebellious teenage son.
