Summary: The forest dwelling tribe of Bayaka pygmies is famed for its acute hearing. When the tribe's revered leader hears a menacing new sound in the forest, his super-sensory powers send a message to "Big Ear," his ethnomusicologist friend Larry Whitman, from his sickbed in New Jersey. Against doctor's orders, Larry travels to his friends in Central Africa to help them battle Mayor Bassoun, a powerful local politician who is helping Mr. Yi, a developer with a logging company intent on destroying the Bayaka's forest home. Refusing to give in, Larry and the pygmies humorously concoct a series of obstacles to try to prevent the loggers, all while continuing to enjoy their colorful way of life with music and dance inspired by the beauty of the African forest, its animals and magical spirits.
