Papua New Guinea’s feverish highlands have become the land of plenty for tourists in search of exoticism and foreign oil companies looking for new fields. In search of modernity, the Wabiria family has traded its traditional lands to ExxonMobil for royalties. But the money never comes and the family realises their landed is being stolen as they are caught between rival tribes, greedy politicians and one of the most powerful multinationals in the world. A world quietly disappears while only a few kilometres away tourists take snap shots of dances that have become meaningless.
