The residents of this Samoan Island are forced into a choice between building a school and preserving the Island's rainforest. Often these pristine eco-systcms are the only economic resource the villagers have and logging the timber is seen as the only means of making money. An American Ethno-botanist, a visitor to the island over twenty years, begs the village council to reconsider and to preserve one of the earth's remaining intact eco-systems. The other inhabitants of this island archipelago are the most beautiful flora and fauna.
