Description:“The Fa'afoi brothers do not know their island of origin. Jason is the star of a very popular children program in New Zealand, Kris is a journalist at TV One. These Kiwis from Tokelau do not know the Kaingas, nor the beaches of their ancestral land. They know nothing of the island's economy based on copra. This year, their parents bring them along in a strictly family trip, so they can find their roots and understand the ties that bind those who left their island to go live somewhere else, a mixture of guilt and understanding.”
