Members of the Happy Mondays visit the Embera Drua people of the Upper Chagres River in Panama. Known as the keepers of the rainforest, this indigenous tribe has lived a subsistent life in the nation's interior for centuries. The aim of the trip is for the band members and the Embera to write a piece of music together that reflects both cultures, but pop band haven't written anything new in over 20 years, so need to get their own house in order first. Can they put aside creative differences and perform a piece of music, or will old habits die hard?
