The Fayu cannot die. Only a curse or an arrow ends a life.

The eight years old girl Sabine arrives at the Indonesian island of West-Papua, together with her parents and 2 siblings. A linguistic research mission brought her family to the jungle of the Fayu. It is the beginning of a great adventure and soon Sabine finds her new home. Far off the western civilization, she grows up as a child of the jungle, but the untouched wilderness holds dangers of its own. The close friendship between Sabine and Auri, a boy of an enemy tribe, almost puts her and her family between the two waring factions. The friendship prevails and turns into an intense bond over the years, until the 16 year old Sabine returns to Germany, a home as alien to her as the rainforest of the Fayu to us.
