A group of Chimanes nomades consisting of five men, three women and fourteen children are living on the edge between the rainforest and the outside world. Their ancestors survived in the rainforest as gatherers and hunters, but the forest is partly gone now and the men now take small day to day work like cutting down forest or working in the fields. The group have no permanent home, and are as such still nomads like their forefathers.
