The People of the Bird

Two generations.

Two cultures.

A shared history.

An uncertain future.

And one bird… nenge.

Deep in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, a community races against time to meet the challenges of a mining venture being thrust upon it.

Guided by the stories of their ancestors, the leaders discover how much a small Bird of Paradise bridges the generations and inspires them to reach some surprising conclusions.
