They are at war. Their land has been invaded by enemies. Enemies that seem invincible. Fighting them seems like a futile exercise. A suicide mission, in fact.
They want to stop fighting. They want to give up.
But the old chief has different ideas.
He still believes in the legend that they need to keep fighting and one day hope will burst through the heavens and destroy their enemies.
So they keep fighting. All because of their ‘ignorant chief’.
Was he really that ignorant? Or could he see the future all along?
This film is a tribute from the director to his cancer-stricken aunt, and to honour the aged and the wise.
