Sione, a young Samoan man studying at university in Wellington, meets and falls in love with Sarah, a young Palagi (European) woman also studying there. The film's plot follows the troubled evolution of their relationship. It also traces the previous life history of Sione from his arrival in New Zealand as a small child accompanying his parents who have migrated from Samoa. All these events in New Zealand are remembered in flashback by the adult Sione who has reluctantly returned with his parents to Samoa after breaking up with Sarah. He recalls meeting her, their relationship blossoming, and the rather fraught occasions when they meet each other's parents and experience prejudice and closed-mindedness. The young couple embark on a road trip through the North Island of New Zealand where they encounter Maori culture and also quarrel. Pressures mount on them and they split up before Sione's return to Samoa. He discovers that he feels just as out of place and alienated in the Samoan environment as he had in Wellington and, after having a bitter confrontation with his mother, he flies back to New Zealand from Apia. Sarah is last seen looking wistful while visiting London.

A Samoan male, Sione, and a Palagi New Zealand female,Sarah, meet while studying at Victoria University. A relationship develops quickly, but each finds the other's culture a hard adjustment. Friends and family are not supportive, particularly when she becomes pregnant, although he proposes marriage. She leaves for Australia for an abortion and he returns to Samoa. An uneven production that has definite merit. Filmed in Wellington, Taupo and Western Samoa
