Set on a remote South Pacific island, covered by rain forest and dominated by an active volcano, this is a heartfelt story of a forbidden love affair, a sister’s loyalty and the struggle between traditional culture and the new ways. The film’s familiar plot, a Romeo and Juliet affair with the star-crossed lovers of rival tribes, is based on a true story and is beautifully enacted by people of the Yakel tribe of Vanuatu.
