25 years ago, U.S.-born Louis Sarno travelled to the Central African rainforest- and never came back. Now a full member of this community of hunters and gatherers, Louis returns with his son Samedi to New York City - a different jungle made of concrete, glass and asphalt - and reunites with family and old friends, including his closest friend from college, indie filmmaker Jim Jarmusch. However, Samedi, who has never left the rainforest and does not speak a word of English, is far more comfortable with the U.S. than his father; the same world that his father wanted to forget is now the one that his son wants to conquer.
A modern epic set between rainforest and skyscrapers, "Song from the Forest" features a fascinating soundtrack and peaceful, loving imagery, as Louis’ and Samedi’s stories are interwoven to form a touching portrait of an extraordinary man and his son.
