Through the fate of two Samoan "fa’afafine" (transvestites), the film evokes a certain distance to the world, between contemplation and renouncement. This attitude finds itself in correspondence with the enigma of a young girl who lives at the end of a remote village. The directors invite you here for an impressionistic rediscovery of the ancient myth of Daphne’s metamorphosis in the Polynesian context.
