The Vatwa are a small minority group that lives in Angola and Namibia. They have given up part of their traditional cultural identity to imitate the dress and language of another tribe: the Himba. To locate the tribe, Dr. Abati's team explores northern Namibia and southern Angola. There, they find the Gambwe, another minority group of agriculturists belonging to the Nyaneka-Nkumbi group. Finally, the team finds the enigmatic Vatwa, who have a difficult time finding sources of nourishment. They have to eat trees and animals including turtles, rejected by other tribes as a source of sustenance.
