Taua - War Party
Synopsis: 

Taua (War Party)   A war party has abducted an enemy leader and bound him to the stern of their war canoe. The war canoe is being towed through a forest, driven by a merciless chief in a bid to escape any pursuers and return home safely with their trophy.   Two young boys sit at the stern of the war canoe. They serve as bailers on the water and water distributors on the land.   On a desperate and gruelling journey, every man is in need of water. Even an unknown captive strapped to the stern.
