A Lithuanian doctor, priest and a war refugee Alexander Ferdinand Bendoraitis (1919-1998) resettles to the Amazonian jungle in 1960’s and becomes a local hero: establishes a boat-clinic network, the first jungle radio, and starts the pacification of local indigenous tribes and builds the most modern hospital in the Amazonia. Yet, as he gets involved in a brutal crime, countless fake narratives that he had created around himself begin to resurface.
