Summary:
The sequel to "First Contact" by filmmakers Bob Connolly and Robin Anderson concerns Australian prospector and explorer Leahy's mixed-race son Joe. Never recognized by his father, Joe has pursued a course of Western life and has risen to affluence as owner of a coffee plantation. But he lives amongst the Ganiga tribe, who envy his success and question the means by which he got his land. In a volatile situation Joe tries to keep the lid on matters, and uses his freedom from tribal obligations to further his financial success. This film looks at a situation which mirrors the questions about Papua New Guinea's future and the choices its people face.
