Description:Ethnologist Alban Bensa, returns to the area in New Caledonia where he has worked for 30 years. His Kanak collaborator, Antoine, has died but his son, Samy, has recovered his fatherÕs books and recordings relating to AntoineÕs attempts to make the multinational nickel corporation, Falconbridge, recognize the land rights of his clan to the Koniambo land.
