As a young man, American Louis Sarno heard a song on the radio, unlike anything he had heard before. He decided to trace this haunting music, and found its source with the Bayaka Tribe in the Central African rain forest. After a while, Louis became a fully accepted member of the tribe and also had a son, Sademi. When Sademi became seriously ill, Louis made a promise to show his son where he came from. SONG FROM THE FOREST follows Louis and Sademi as they return to New York City for the first time.
