In Papua New Guinea’s frenzied, forgotten highlands, a tribe of shareholders lives out of sight. Seeking modernity, the Wabiria family and clan have traded their traditional lands to ExxonMobil for royalties. Faced with jealous neighbors, greedy politicians and one of the most powerful corporations in the world, they now feel the ground slipping out from under their feet. This Far West jungle has become the backdrop of a Shakespearean drama.
