Peru - Counterfeit Money (Dan Collyns) - The Peruvian capital of Lima is the "fake dollar" capital of the world, according to the United States Secret Service. For the past four years, the U.S. government has declared Peru the world's leading producer of fake US currency. That's a fact drawing a lot of attention to the clandestine world of Peru's counterfeiters as Correspondent Dan Collyns reports.
Brazil - Syrian Refugees (Gerry Hadden) - As European countries squabble over how many refugees from the Syrian war to take in, an unlikely and far-away country has already opened its doors: Brazil. "The Giant of the South" has taken in over 2000 Syrians, and has plans for 20,000 more this year. The country is fast-tracking their visas, making it an easy and safe destination. However, many Syrian refugees know very little of Brazil.

Peru - Uncontacted (Dan Collyns) - Living deep within the Amazon rainforest, in Brazil and Peru, are dozens of so-called "un-contacted" tribes. These indigenous and historic communities have had little to almost no contact with the outside world. The Mashco Piro people are believed to have fled into the recesses of the jungle during the Amazon Rubber "Boom" in the late 1800s. This was a time of enslavement and death for many tribes. The Mashco Piro had rejected all contact with outsiders until recently.
