SYNOPSIS
In one of the last traditional tribes in the South Pacific, a young girl, Wawa, falls in love with her chief’s grandson, Dain. When an inter-tribal war escalates, Wawa is unknowingly betrothed as part of a peace deal. The young lovers run away, but are pursued by enemy warriors intent on killing them. They must choose between their hearts and the future of the tribe, while the villagers must wrestle with preserving their traditional culture and adapting it to the increasing outside demands for individual freedom. Based on a true story and performed by the people of Yakel.
The Yakel still live a fully traditional Kastom lifestyle in their mountainous jungle home, in the shadow of an active volcano, maintaining their belief system and social structure despite contact with the modern world. Although they had never even seen a film before, the tribe openly embraced the opportunity to explore this new way of storytelling.
