We join an archeological expedition to one of the most remote places in North America. In the Sonoran desert, the team discovers artifacts over 10,000 years old revealing evidence of humans and now-extinct megafauna like mammoth coexisting. The trip is a collaboration between scientists from the National Institute of Archeology and History in Sonora, Mexico, and the Desert Laboratory in Tucson, Arizona. A cinematic meditation on archeology and filmmaking by producer David Fenster.
