Description:This documentary is an unusual blend of medical science providing much clinical detail on XavierÕs health problems as well as finely observed film of how a Papua New Guinean village deals with this crisis in the life of one of its important members. His close knit community at home in New Ireland is with him the whole way in spirit, and these people who have so little to spare, give their hearts and souls to will Xavier well. Science, religion and sorcery must combine to help in the saving of Xavier.
