British explorer Ed Stafford records his journey on camera as he attempts to become the first person to walk the entire length of the Amazon River. He begins the trek with Luke Collyer, before he recruits Gadiel Sánchez Rivera to help him complete the expedition. Walking over two and a half years through some of the planet’s toughest terrain, we see Ed cross the inhospitable Andes; descend in to the world’s deepest valley; become lost in the vast Amazon rainforest; come close to starvation; contract a flesh-eating tropical disease; and flee murderous drug-traffickers and suspicious tribespeople.
