After an official meeting on the next day as part of his PR campaign, Wanu suffers from a heart attack. Hardly being able to speak and laying in a hospital bed, he demands to see Perrin. The latter is not very interested in meeting the shaman again. However it looks like the shaman and Perrin seem to be tied mentally somehow. Campana decides to take Perrin to the Amazon forest in the hope of curing Wanu by "seeking his soul". Perrin accepts, but only because his life is threatened by {{loan shark}}s he owes money to. Once they're in Brazil, Perrin and Campana find themselves confronting Kumare (Trejo), a ruthless tribe chief and gang leader who wants to steal the lands of Wanu's tribe.
