Overview

The true story of two women stranded on remote Hermit Island atoll after their sailboat strikes a reef and sinks. At the mercy of the indigenous people, they are forced to live with the locals while they devise a plan to refloat their boat and sail to civilization. With careful planning and the help of the island men, they manage to save their boat from the reef only to find it immediately embroiled in a "cargo cult" salvage rights dilemma. Subjected to the arcane traditions of the locals, they struggle to keep control of their boat while they repair it in preparation for the dangerous trip to the mainland. It's a unique look into the primitive culture of one of Papua New Guinea's most isolated civilizations.
