Fernando, a solitary ornithologist, is looking for black storks when he is swept away by the rapids. Rescued by a couple of Chinese pilgrims, he plunges into an eerie and dark forest, trying to get back on his track.
Fernando is a 35-year-old ornithologist. He decides to go down a river in a kayak, hoping to find extremely rare black storks. Distracted by the beauty of the landscape, Fernando is soon thrown overboard by the current, and his motionless, bloody body reaches the riverbank.Written by

Where's my medicine?
The best thing that can be said about this film is that it's not predictable. I kept watching just to see what ridiculous thing would happen next. When the bare- breasted huntresses on horseback appeared--one blowing a horn, I lost it. If anything, it makes for good conversation when talking with friends about weird movies.
