Through the eyes of a San Bushmen hunter who lives in the Kalahari Desert, perceive a world invisible to outsiders--a world where every footprint, every raindrop, and every broken branch tells a story. How do these ancient people fit in the modern world?

The story of three San (Bushman) hunters at their most extreme limits of endurance, culminating in "the Chasing Hunt" - a ritual that has never before been revealed to the world outside of the Kalahari. Discover the extraordinary spiritual relationship between the hunter and the hunted.
