Based on a true Romeo and Juliet story, this tale of dangerous, forbidden love takes place on Tanna, one of the lush Vanuatu jungle islands in the South Pacific. Tradition rules that girls must marry outside their tribe, but Wawa and Dain, members of the same tribe, secretly fall in love.
When mayhem occurs from attacks from a neighboring tribe, Dain’s mother is speared to death and his father, the tribe’s shaman, is so severely attacked that he appears brain damaged.

As the grandfather makes the pact, he does not know that the chief’s son is the one who bashed in the shaman’s head. (CONTINUED)
