“Papa”, one of the chiefs of a tribe in the highlands, is taxi driver of a " Tinpis", a collective bush-taxi (a sardine tin in Pidgin). Saved from an ac cident by Naaki, a young man from the city, he offers him his daughter in thanks. Joanna and Naaki, however, refuse that their happiness be deci ded by her
father, even though they have already fallen in love. Through a burlesque comedy, we see this unique country with its complex society where the generation gap is accentuated and magnified by the changes in clan life, men and women, the days and the centuries. The first Papou feature film.
