Genre: Family
98 min


My name is Lea Clark, and my

presentation is on Brazil.

I visited there last summer with

my family to see my brother Zac,

who works at

an animal sanctuary.

Brazil is the largest country

in South America.

The official language

is Portuguese.

Sixty percent of the Amazon's

rainforest is in Brazil.

But those are

just the book facts.

To really learn about

Brazil, you must go there.

And that's exactly what we did.

Tell everybody about your hike!

She totally saved her dad!

Well, go on, Lea, tell us.

We were on a hike,

high above the Praia Tropical.

It was me, my dad,

and my brother.

Pick it up, Zac.

We gotta reach that point.

We gotta hit that other edge.

But the path

unexpectedly narrowed

and we found ourselves dangerously

close to enormous cliffs.

We agreed we should turn

back, when suddenly,

my father plummeted

out of sight!


we looked down and there he was,

dangling from a ledge,

the rocks starting to crumble

underneath his fingertips,

and not another person

anywhere in sight.

It was a race against time

as the sun was setting

- and a sharp chill crept into the air.

- A chill?

Isn't Brazil near the equator?

Jimmy, sit down.

With few options, I took off,

back along the narrow, dangerous

trail to summon help,

to the rescue station

down in the valley.

And just as it was

beginning to get dark,

my dad and Zac were losing hope.

Whoosh' Whoosh.

A helicopter arrived to help.

No way!

This way. Come on!

Over here!

Right here.

We lifted Dad to safety.

Well, that is amazing, Lea.

Thank you.

You're totally a hero!

No. I mean, I just

did what I had to do.

So cool!

Yeah, right.

Nice story, Pinocchio!

What? You got a good

imagination, Lea.

Leave her alone, Jimmy.

All those pictures, but

none of the helicopter.

That's, I...

It's all true.

I was there.



Go ahead.


Hey, Cricket!

Team Zea!

What are you doing here?

Why aren't you in Brazil?

This is so amazing.

Did you hear my report?

We had to pick a country.

And most of my friends chose...

Are you the new Math teacher?

Lea, this is Paula.

Hi. I'm very excited to

meet Zachary's baby sister.


I sure am.

Paula, your work

sounds so fascinating.

And what an honor to be flown out

here to speak for the weekend.

Mom, Paula's an expert

on the recent changes

in the Amazon's

animal population.

I wouldn't go that far.

Well, I'm impressed.

And now here we are. My first time

in the United States of America.

Well, that's wonderful.

And we're very pleased

to have you here.

Who's hungry?

- I am.

- Good.

Zac, would you take those

salads to the table for me?

Sure, Mom.

Thank you.

I'm so glad we caught you before

you go off white-water rafting.

I still don't understand.

Why can't I go?

It's a bunch of

middle-aged dads!

And the rapids are pretty wild.

I'm tough.

And a good swimmer.

I know you are, sweetheart.

But if you were to come along,

then Eric would bring Sarah and

Sam would bring the twins...

Okay. I guess I'll stay home.

Paula, is your

family from Manaus?

Yes, my sisters and

I were born there.

My grandfather

was born in Brazil.

- Really?

- Did he tell you that?

Know your mother Ama

came to Brazil many times.

She worked at

a health clinic in Manaus.

Oh, it's not far

from the sanctuary.

That's why Zac chose

to do his work there,

because of my mom.

She must have been

an amazing woman.

She met real Indians

in the rain forest,

- who ate bugs and lived and lived in huts.

- Okay, but... But...

And they went...
