Breathtaking in scope and naturalism, the film was developed and performed by the people of Yakel, based on a true story. 

This ‘Romeo and Juliet’ tale of forbidden love and adventure captures youthful romance and the formidable pressures of tribal life. 

The film won the audience award for best feature film at the 72nd annual Venice film festival.
