1880. Three hundred Italian peasants follow their dreams of a better life in the South Pacific. They join an expedition to establish a utopian colony, lured by the promise of liberty and wealth. Their journey across the world delivers them to the remote jungles of New Guinea, where the dream disintegrates into a feverish nightmare of tropical diseases, starvation, and violence. As supplies dwindle, survival seems impossible. Australia beckons, but their biggest challenge awaits them. Written by Steve Capelin, a descendant of the expedition, and based on extensive research of true events.
