The sequel to First Contact, this film follows Joe, the mixed-race son of Australian explorer Michael Leahy, in his rocky relationship with his indigenous neighbours. Raised in the highlands of Papua and educated in Europe, he owns a coffee plantation, on the edge of which filmmakers Connolly and Anderson lived for months, capturing the conflicting values of tribalism and capitalism.
