As an American Rancher in the Brazilian Amazon, John and his wife Kika raised a family on the edge of one of the world’s last great frontiers. I visited them in their home in Mato Grosso, and during one of our script meetings, John asked to take a break. His daughters wanted to take their horses across the river. Luckily I always carry a camera and fortunately was quick enough to captured what happened next. An extraordinary back story emerge which I’ve worked into the movie about their experiences.
