In 1956, five American missionaries in Ecuador were speared to death by a Stone Age tribe of Indians known as the Aucas. Two years later, the wife and sister of two of the murdered missionaries walked into the jungle to live with the same people who had murdered the men they loved. Today, the Aucas (now known as the Waodani) are a changed people.

This film again brought Story Front into the jungles of Ecuador, and is another example of the editorial, production, and camera skills of the collaborative’s creative engine.
