A family from the suburbs of Minneapolis, MN goes to live among a group of primitive Indians. Their family consists of four children-three are of elementary school age, and the fourth is an eight-month-old handicapped baby. At this point the family has gone through two years of training and preparation, but now their experiences are for real. An unexpected invitation from a middle-aged Kogi man to live in a mud-walled, thatched-roofed hut on his little farm opens the door to this forbidden land where death by poisoning is the penalty for Indians who befriend outsiders. The nearest government police officer predicts that the family won't last two weeks.

•You will understand how a complicated yet primitive people live.
•You will grasp how a suburban family can adapt to live among them.
•You will observe how miracles of healing CAN turn enemies into friends.
•You will learn how God can enable your family to withstand difficult situations with faith and courage.
•You will see how a woman in missions put her call into action.
