This film follows a group of scientists as they plan and set off for a major expedition within a still unexplored part of the Amazonian Rainforest in search for new animal species. The expedition to Serra da Mocidade happened between January and February 2016, and it was a success beyond all expectations. The comparison between the new species found in Serra da Mocidade and similar animals from other places will help scientists understand the process of evolution on the Earth.
