Storyline

"The power to change, the strength to heal" is the catch phrase for the new film from Tusi Tamasese about family connections, redemption and starting anew. The father of a deeply troubled household that endured tragedy both from without and within, seeks to reconcile with his youngest daughter by making a journey to both symbolically and culturally lay the family "ghosts" to rest. Written by Red Haircrow
