Tribal rituals putting manhood to the test
Adventurer and filmmaker Tim Noonan embarks on a solo journey of self-discovery to worlds beyond his imagination to try and unlock the mysteries of what it means to be the ultimate man. Throughout this epic series, Noonan first has to earn the trust of some of the world’s least known tribes.
With just the clothes on his back and a camera, he is put through rituals, initiations and gruelling tests to man-up and prove himself worthy of their respect. He joins snake divers in Cameroon, coming face-to-fangs with a killer cobra, then on to Trobriand Island to wrestle with sharks, along with a host of other gripping trials, to become a man of each tribe
