Description:Children of migrants share a common story. The first generation born in a new country must live between two cultures: The land of their birth and the culture of their parentsŐ birthplace. This is the story of four young New Zealand-born Pacific women (Emeline Afeaki, Pule Puletaua, Lanni Liuvaie, Louise Tu`u) whose parents have come from villages in Tonga, Niue, and Samoa. The film is about their struggle to combine two cultures and to find their place and identity here.
