The Kamoro, some 18000 people speaking the same language, live along the south coast of New Guinea, the worlds largest tropical island, located just north of Australia, across the shallow Arafura Sea. The Kamoro still follow a semi-nomadic existence, one of the few surviving hunter-gatherer groups in the world. Hunting forays still take place, but fishing is far more important. Indeed, the survival of the Kamoro depends on fishing, along with the sago, their starch staple. Fish and sago are the main Kamoro staples providing protein and starch. The film follows the traditional Kamoro, who's life-style fits perfectly with the bountiful resources that nature provides for them, such as fishing, collecting shellfish, hunting for monitor lizards, gathering the slimy tambelo, and sago production among lots more.
