An anthropology student travels to the pacific island of Samoa - where private property does not exist - to study its economic system, which she admires. Barely arrived in the hotel her clothes get stolen. The theft sets her off on a furious odyssey to emotionally and intellectually comprehend the meaning of "sharing" - an odyssey that brings her from sea turtles to the the winner of Samoan Idol, has her received by the prime minister and barely avoiding a tsunami, and finally forces her to join the local soccer team. THE THEFT is an ironic documentary about why we in the West love our possessions and are bad at sharing our resources.
Property is theft
