What happened to the pygmoïd Papuans that the Gaisseau-Delloye expedition had discovered in 1960? Thirty years later, Arnoult Seveau and Luc-Henri Fage are the first to make the same crossing again, from south to north of Indonesian New Guinea. Escaping the surveillance of the military, without any external support, they walk to the meeting of the forbidden mountain. More than a thousand kilometers very trying, through uncontrolled territories where live fascinating Papuans cutters of stone axes. It is to the Papuans, these great "small men" of the mountains, ultimate depositories of the memory of the mists, that A. Seveau and L.-H. Fage dedicate their beautiful adventure...
