In 1832, two Germans, a naturalist (Prince Maximilian of Wield) and an artist (Karl Bodmer) documented the region along the Missouri: it's landscapes, animals, plants and especially the life of Native Americans. This film uses their paintings and journals to recreate an encounter with a time, cultures, and people that no longer exist.
