Tewet is a Dayak of the great forest of Borneo. This discreet man was one of the first explorer of Marang Mountains, a limestone massif rugged by erosion. One goal: gold caves. These are the nests that swallows nesting in cave, make with their saliva. Their tragedy is that these nests are edible, and the Chinese love them because they lend their medical virtues ... But the forest destruction, overexploitation of nests, and preemption of the most prolific caves by government undermine their way of life ... Luc-Henri Fage, inventor of the caves of Borneo, has befriended his best guide, Tewet, during 15 expeditions together. Today, he follow Tewet in his last tour... He tries to help Tewet to find a solution to his community.
