It's 30,000 BC. Hiding in a giant mimosa tree, Maru watches her father meet with the leader of a treacherous Andean tribe. Her father, furious that she's followed him, tells her that if he is killed—something he fully expects—she must warn their people to flee. The people are prepared; Maru at age seven is not. Her father places heavy responsibility on her because she followed him.
Courage, 30,000 BC is the story of a people who are utterly threatened but ultimately contribute from adversity some of the most amazing cave art in the Americas.
