The Central African Republic. In the shade of sub-Saharan rainforests, there lives a tribe of the shortest people on Earth – the Baka pigmies. As it was hundreds years ago, they hunt for meat and gather the gifts of big trees. They pray to the spirits of the forest and teach their children to respect the forest, to take from it only what they really need. But little by little, their traditional mode is changing under the pressure of the "Big World" culture.
