An indigenous woman of Papua New Guinea walks before the rain forest with a basket on her head.

After a Canadian gold mine operation turns her island upside down, an indigenous landowner struggles to rewrite her life.

Misima explores what happens when our lives escape our control and how we can rediscover our resilience by opening our hearts.

One village woman, attempting to regain control over her destiny, reflects a central aspect of what it means for all women to live in the modern world.

Her world was turned upside down by a massive gold mine operation and the corrosive effects of Westernization, but her resilience will inspire audiences across the globe.

Misima is the first documentary film about the indigenous people of Misima Island, located off the mainland of Papua New Guinea.
