Manaus is a town in the heart of Amazonas. Its wealth was linked to the production of India rubber. With the decline of this economic acitvity it has gradually become an untidy and riotous free port in which it is possible to witness the dramatic and progressive elimination of the Indios civilization. This short documentary depicts this profound historical, cultural and social change that has now reached the point of no return.
