This documentary follows the homecoming of a New Guinea tribesman who has gone abroad for an education, becoming the tribe's first Ph.D. anthropologist. Given that, why did he arrange the feast in such a manner as to give offense to important members of his tribe? Reviewers thought there was something amiss, and it is possible that the whole documentary is of the nature of an elaborate tribal joke played upon outsiders, orchestrated by the tribal anthropologist himself. Even if that is the case, one learns a great deal about the customs of these people.
