This romantic coming of age story is based on the memoirs of John H Groberg, who served as a missionary in the remote Tonga islands in the late 1950s.

having been raised in the farming community of Idaho Falls, this 20 year-old had barely seen the ocean let alone crossed it at the time of his assignment.

This film follows John Groberg's adventure-filled journey from boy to man as he strives to fulfill the expectations of the Polynesians he has been called to teach. More often than not, the teacher becomes the student as we are poignantly reminded that finding oneself can be the longest journey of all.
