The rough highlands of Papua New Guinea have become the land of plenty for tourists in search of exoticism and foreign oil companies looking for new fields. Tribes get paid to dress up for visitors while a local Huli family and their clan have agreed to sell their land to ExxonMobil with dreams of modernity. But the money never comes and they are now caught between rival tribes, greedy politicians and one of the most powerful multinationals in the world.
Tourists point their cameras on dances that have lost their meaning. And a world is disappearing without a sound.
