Ema (Philippines) & Jay (Salomon Islands)


Ema: She is a Dumagat, one of the last Pygmy tribes in Asia. Like her ancestors, EMA will leave her tribe to join her future husband, Ruben, who lives at the other end of the forest. Maiman, EMA’s mother, is the most skillful hunter of her village. She will accompany EMA on her journey and teach her all the hunting and fishing techniques she knows.

Jay: He is eleven years old. On his island, they say he is the descendant of Ficafica, a young boy to whom the secret of kite fishing was revealed. It’s now time for him to learn about this incredible way of catching pipefish, and it’s up to his uncle Wapo to teach him.
