Situated in the South Pacific north of New Zealand, the Republic of Fiji was settled as far back as 3500 BC. With the help of foreign settlers, Ratu Seru Epenisa Cakobau united part of Fiji's warring tribes under his leadership and established a united Fijian kingdom in 1871. The British subjugated the island in 1874 and brought over Indian contract laborers. This film examines how, after gaining independence from British rule in 1971, Fiji has struggled to maintain political stability in spite of differences between the Fijian and Indo-Fijian people. With a culture that is a rich mosaic of Indigenous Fijian, Indo-Fijian, Asian, and European traditions, a unique way of life has developed on this beautiful island nation?
