In the jungles of the Indonesian island of Sumatra, locals have reported seeing a creature that looks like an ape yet walks like a human. They've named it Orang Pendek, or the "little man" of the forest. Spain's assignment is to find out whether a new great ape is waiting to be discovered or if we have a strange new cousin. Journey with him on a pilgrimage to a respected shaman who provides further details of Orang Pendek and local folklore.
