The interaction of a cosmological order to the sensitive balance between human and nature remains unexplored in everyday life. This is not the case in the spiritual world of the Shipibo Indians who are living in the Peruvian Amazon. The viewer will discover a powerful journey through the pictures in this movie. In isolation of the forest the young Mokan Rono studies the traditional knowledge of the medicinal and ritual plant Ayahuasca with the help of a shaman and his mother, who is a mistress of traditional healing art. Icaros is an invitation to a fascinating excursion through time and space.
