Summary :

Fiji: an archipelago located in the Pacific Ocean. Of its more than 300 islands, only about 100 are inhabited.

First we meet Manasa Bulivou, from Benga. In the shelter of the barrier reef , Manasa goes diving with his son Tumbi to feed their guardian angels: the Shark Gods.

Then we meet Hannah Bennett. She is a surfing champion. Her quest will take her all the way to Cloudbreak, one of the most beautiful waves in the world.

Finally we meet Franck Boivert, a rugby coach. He combs the villages of the outlying islands hoping to discover the rare gem of Fijian rugby.
