The Pan-American Highway is the world's longest road: 15,000 miles from Alaska down to Tierra del Fuego - except for one missing link. On the border between
Panama and Colombia lies a tangle of jungle and swamp that no road can cross. This is the Darien, the wildest and wettest expanse of rainforest in Central America. Two colourful Indian cultures dwell here among the ruins of gold mines and a vast swampland with a unique array of wildlife. This film charts naturalist and writer Jonathan Maslow's arduous trek through the last great American wilderness.
