They live in the most remote places on the planet. They belong to ancient cultures and have special genetics. Men and women who survive in the most hostile environments on earth. The adventurer Raul Gómez travels to those places to be one of them and to test his body facing that gift that makes them so special. He’s going to discover why they are SUPERHUMANS.

EP 2:

Raúl travels to South East Asia in order to meet the Bajau people, an extraordinary community of sea farers. For centuries, the Bajau have thrived as hunter-gatherers of the sea: They can spend up to six hours a day in and out of water without any external equipment. As a consequence, some genetic adaptations have taken place that give them a tremendous advantage as free divers.

Raúl will try his best to become one of them, incorporating their routines as his own, and immersing himself in their traditions.
