Anders is dead. It is left to his coworker, Marina Singh, to travel into the heart of the Amazon to bring back answers for the pharmaceutical company and Anders body for his wife. Endless millions, and Anders life, have been spent on Dr. Swanson's research on the miraculous fertility of a remote Amazonian tribe, and the company is losing its patience. Dr. Singh will find far more questions than answers as she travels into the depth of the Amazon jungle and is forced to face her own demons.
