|Description:||The islands of Kiribati are among the most isolated in the Pacific. Because of this isolation it has been possible for the people of Tabiteuea Island to retain much of their traditional way of life. The film focuses on a part of that life in which Manerue -- a schoolgirl of fourteen -- celebrates her first menstruation in a special three-day ritual from precolonial times.|
