Miami local Brad King travels through the jungles and rainforests of Panama to find the tribe he photographed and befriended twenty years earlier. As his search begins to bear fruit, it becomes apparent that photos have the power to breach time and cultural divides much more than expected. An exceptionally beautiful and thoughtful documentary twenty years in the making, Bancoco is an indelible chronicle of an impossible but essential look at life.
