Follow adventurer, Ivan Bulík, through his travels in the Central African Republic. He may have visited most parts of the continent but this place has always eluded him. The Pygmies, natives of the region, have a completely different way of life and their customs are ridden with superstitions. How does he manage to deal with a tribe that has no administration and shoots down people for an idle smirk? Meet the Children of the Jungle, endangered by civilization but rarely discussed, in this eye-opening feature. Their hunts, their rituals, the wild animals, all add to the thrills of this journey, making it the experience of a lifetime.
