this was inspired by a book i read, "through the gates of splendour" about four young men who want to take the gospel to the acau indians in south america. they had been dropping gifts to them by air, and seemed ready to meet them face to face, but were unexpectedly ambushed and killed by the indians. this scene shows them being attacked. (next to a river in the jungle)
About this creation
they had guns, but they knew that using them would make it impossible for the auca indians to be reached.

Quoting Ian Spacek
Very nice! I believe this is actually based off a true story and after the four guys deaths (or was it five in real life?), the natives actually came to know the Lord. It's a beautiful story!
indeed it is! after their deaths, one of their wives and sister then went and lived with the indians and witnessed to them.
