The forbidden romance between South Pacific islanders Wawa (Marie Wawa) and Dain (Mungau Dain) is told from the perspective of Wawa's scampish little sister Selin (Marceline Rofit). When Wawa is ordered to marry into a neighboring tribe as part of a peace offering, the two lovers flee into territories beyond their jungle home. This first feature to be shot on the tropical island of Vanuatu was inspired by a true love story told to Australian directors Bentley Dean and Martin Butler during the seven months they lived among the indigenous Yakel people.
