New Caledonia, October 2018. In the lead-up to the country's independence referendum, a Kanak woman fights to preserve her culture, as well as the future of her tribe, Vieux-Touho.
Is this community ready to welcome a woman as head of its tribe?
Filmed during the referendum, Eden Tribal follows the daily tribulations of the Vieux-Touho clan, as they are faced with the need to transfer their customs in order to survive. The group also tackles social pressure and the ghosts of colonization.
In their fight for a better future, their only way to shape their new geography and solve this ancestral conflict is to deal with both present and past issues.
