So he jumps off , putting his life at risk.Fortunately, he reaches other side of the waterfall.Now he had reached his forest.Now he was feeling bold and sturdy at this place.Somehow, another tribal chief also reaches there.But protagonist says to him furiously, It was the forest of my ancestors!My ancestors hunted  here and fostered us at this place.I hunted in my forest and my offspring will also hunt here!What can you do? Move towards me if you have courage!Saying it, he begins to flee. One of the tribesmen says to the chief,We should leave because It is their region.Chief is got angry saying, I have lost my son and you are uttering this.Immediately, he kills him with a dagger.And the rest of the tribesmen are afraid and they had to be with the chief at any cost.Thinking it, a man jumps down.But he is dead while crashing with a rock.While fearing, other tribesmen also jump down.


Some of them reach at the bank while others cannot.Further, the protagonist is shown who was entrapped in the bog.He frees himself with a force.But his whole body had gone muddy.He says after Being touched with his forest's mud, I will not run anymore now!Because no one ever had won the fear nor it will never ever happen!I will face them. He gets the  honey bee nest, thinking it.And covering it into a leaf, he throws it on the tribesmen.As a result , honey bees begin to attack them.Having the muddy body, those honey bees cannot harm the protagonist in any way.Then the protagonist picks up a poisonous toad.And plucking the thorns, he  coats them with the poison.And he throws those thorns on the tribesmen, through making a blowgun of a leaf.Then protagonist  moves near to kill him.Hearing the screaming of that man,  representative of chief also comes there.And he catches his glimpses. That man was equipped.But protagonist was empty-handed.So he runs to possess that dead man's weapon.On the other side, that man is also running towards him.That man is nearly to attack the  protagonist.Protagonist targets his head  while picking the weapon of lying dead man.


And that man is ended at the spot.Then it is shown that the heavy rain started in the forest.Protagonist began worrying of his wife and the son.Because that well was filling with water.The chief shoots an arrow on him as he moves ahead.And he falls down. The chief was in extreme anger.Because he wanted to avenge his son's death.So he advances towards him, taking out his dagger.So this was the forest of the protagonist.And it was the same place where they had hunted the wildlife.


And there were still set traps there.Being ignorant of it, so chief places his foot on the trap coming forward,Many thorns fixed on that trap are thrust into the body of the chief.And he is to be killed. But there were still 2 survivors of that tribe.Here the protagonist was taking care of his wife and son,He begins to run  back. But he notices the big ships at the sea.They had reached there while discovering the new land.And another tribesmen were also present there.As the chief had been killed ,So they had no profit in killing the protagonist.They don't harm him so the protagonist begins to run towards the well.His another expectant baby was coming into life which is delivered in the well.He pulls his wife and kids with the rope outside from the well.Then it is shown that they are standing at the shore of the same sea.His wife asks him, do we go there?He replies, No! we will begin our new life, moving into the forest.And we will take a new turn and the movie also ends with it.
