Set deep on the lush Samoan island of Upolu, this stunning feature by director Tusi Tamasese tells of a love woven by fate, parted by an unforgiving past, to be restored with courage. It draws on universal themes of love, honour and forgiveness in a fresh and evocative glimpse into a world never before seen in cinema. Marginalised at the outskirts of the village, Saili lives quietly with his wife Vaaiga and her teenage daughter Litia, until her brother Poto arrives unexpectedly and demands she return to her family, ending seventeen years of banishment. With his neighbours encroaching on his land and his family threatened, Saili is forced to defy expectations and discover the depth and strength of his love for his wife and family. The first Samoan language feature film. "A powerful and impressive achievement. This film really is very special. " - Peter Calder , NZ Herald.
