    • Synopsis
    • Set in the small, tribal village of Yakel on the Vanuatu island of Tanna, this is the remarkable story of 108-year-old Chief Kowia as he nears the end of his long, eventful life. As he faces his mortality, he worries what will happen to his people when he is no longer there to guide them. Without Chief Kowia’s influence, can the people of Yakel continue to hold the world at bay?
