- Duration:16 min
One evening Alisi (17) climbs a huge tree and won't come down. As evening turns to night, her sanctuary becomes her prison - and her secret is out. Alisi is pregnant to her gay best friend, Mikaele (17), and it's all over Facebook. Mikaele finds Alisi, who blames him for being a blabbermouth, bringing shame to her Christian Tongan family. Alisi tries to run away, but a search party of younger cousins turns up and texts her oldest brother Terence. It's a generational culture-clash, but Alisi won't give in - not even when her whole family camps out under the tree. As the stars turn and the night gets colder, Alisi must decide whether she will bow to traditional solutions or find a new path - with or without her family.
