Dain is a chieftain's grandson and Wawa granddaughter of a shaman. The pair are in love, but when rivalry with a neighbouring tribe erupts into violence, Wawa is promised to a warrior of that tribe as part of peace negotiations. Forbidden by their elders from being together, Wawa and Dain resolve to defy their families.
Shot entirely on location, the film tells a true story and many of the cast played characters based on their own roles in society, featuring traditional tribal dances, pig slaughtering and penis sheaths.
Winner of the audience award at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival.
