Merry Wanderer of the Night + TIME

Review: The Five Lost Days by William Petrick

Documentary producer Michael Burns and his team travel to remote Belize in an attempt to capture the “magic” of the last curandero (healer) on film. It is Burns hope to unearth some yet undiscovered medicinal property found native to the rain forest. He meets Kelly Montgomery, a ethnobotanist that is stationed in Belize with her husband. Burns is instantly drawn to her strength, her natural beauty. Burns and his crew discover that they have gotten themselves into more than they expected and soon find themselves in the middle of a local political battle.

THE FIVE LOST DAYS is a thrilling tale of ancient beliefs and local politics that will keep you begging for more.
