Saili, an unassuming villager & taro farmer, lives happily with his beautiful wife Vaaiga and her teenage daughter Litia. Their existence, while happy and peaceful, is unconventional. Vaiga has been banished from her ancestral village for many years. Saili faces serious threats to his plantation as well as his family and has been denied his fathers chiefly title. Life is complicated further by Litia's blossoming beauty that is getting the attention of the young men in the village. Matters ultimately come to a head, requiring Saili to speak up, speak out and defend all that he holds precious. Filmed entirely on the island of Upolu, Samoa. Recommended.
