Synopsis

Set in the frontier world of the Amazon Rainforest. Transamazonica is a contemporary western, where those seeking fortune are still invading the land of the indigenous to take what does not belong to them. Transamazonica is also the unravelling of a mystery. As young miracle healer Rebecca and her missionary father Hans Grothe find themselves drawn into the escalating conflict between an indigenous tribe and the marauding loggers, the very premise of their relationship will be tested. When Rebecca tries to use her status as a miracle healer to mediate between the warring sides, she must confront the mystery of her past, which lies hidden inside the forest, deep in the indigenous reservation and buried in her memory.
