Set in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea, a mother raises her disabled son alone after her husband has died. Hardworking and aware of cultural traditions, she educates him on his land rights and how to protect them. As a young man their close bond is ripped apart when she is accused of being a witch. Unable to physically defend her he can only hide and watch from a distance as his mother is dragged away and murdered by a violent mob.
