Nestling among the mountains in New Guinea, Indonesia, there is one of the last lands discovered by western man.Civilization, brought by catholic missionaries and islamic government officers is gradually taking over this land. Dressed only with a penis sheath made of hollow pumpkin, the natives continue hier rituals, but for how long? Pigs are reared and suckled by the women of the tribe like children as they re suppose to have a soul like man's. The housband holds them in more esteem than the women he has married. The village huts have two entrances, one for the man and one for the women and pigs.
