Film Synopsis:

Joe Moses believes that, as long as he is alive, his duty is to help people. For years he has been fighting for his community in Paga Hill, at the outer edge of Papua-New Guinea’s capital. An Australian developer is trying to forcibly evict them with the aim of replacing the locals’ modest dwellings with a luxurious hotel resort and harbour. The displacement has no legal foundation, but it seems that no one is interested in the native community’s rights, not even the local politicians. This investigative documentary about defenceless inhabitants fighting for their homes is filled with suspense and unexpected twists.
