Obaidur Rahaman, a native of India, embarks on a solo journey in South America. As the story unfolds it becomes clear that this is not going to be a typical story of a western backpacker. There are severe limitations of travelling alone and with an Indian passport.
As he continues with his journey, he passionately explores the history, culture, and natural beauty of South America while constantly struggling with dilemmas, overestimated problems and occasional panic attacks. But he never loses heart, learns from his mistakes and keeps walking on his uncertain, unforeseeable, ever changing path.
But what happens when he gets stranded in the Amazon unable to get the visa to cross the border? What happens when he is expected to give a talk in Spanish in front of a class full of Portuguese-speaking students? What happens when he gets caught up into a storm while boating alone in a lake infested by caimans (crocodilians) and piranhas?
