A classic heroic journey of discovery and survival in the remote South Pacific when The Man Went South captures a universal story of courage and the search for wisdom. The story of a Tongan hunter named Flying Fox (Soa Prescott) who, at the suggestion of His chief song whale (Loketi Tatafu), ventures out of the comfort of his village to discover the mysterious ways of the world that exist beyond his own island, and about his strengths as a man. During his outward journey, Flying Fox encounters two belligerent villages and tries to convey their respective differences. A triumph of storytelling filmed on the picturesque island of Eua. When The Man Went South is the first film to be made entirely in the Kingdom by Tonga, an archipelago in the South Pacific.
