This film travels to the core of Easter Island, beyond the postcard image that we know. Despite countless episodes of foreign "exploration", which began in 1722 with the arrival of a Dutch Captain, the Rapa Nui people have maintained their millenary culture alive. Through the journey of Marisol Hito, a Polynesian house wife that becomes fierce leader in the local territorial struggle, we meet the untold story of those that constructed the mysterious Moai totems.
