It reminds me of bush-man that we all have relished in 'Gods must be crazy', though this time bush-men doesn't comes in our territory instead we go in theirs.
Being created long back, I wonder if its still happening. Now after seeing this movie, I am thinking to pack my bags and see it all live the way it is happening. A must watch!
