WHAT'S THE STORY?

White Sunday weekend has arrived at West Harbourview Union and the church is bustling in preparation.

The congregation's pride and joy – Lumana’i youth group – are in full-flight as they rehearse for Sunday’s festivities, as usual they fill the church with effortless music and life. 

However, amidst the harmonies a young man PULE (Taofia Pelesasa) struggles with the reality that he will soon be leaving this – his future sealed as a pastor in training at the prestigious Bible College in Samoa. 


But before he leaves, he must acknowledge a few truths, the most important of these is that he’s fallen in love.

OUR TEAM

WHERE WILL THE MONEY GO?

Whether it's $5 or $50, every little bit really does help! There are so many costs involved in a film and because we want to enter festivals some of the costs are pretty expensive, like the hireage on the high quality camera we want to shoot on.

So what kind of things can your money help us pay for? Take a look below for an idea on some of the things we need.

SOUNDS GOOD, I'M IN!

We are so humbled by all of the support we have already had and your donation above anything is a gesture of pure LOVE. Whether that be a love of story-telling or love of seeing a young group of film-makers out there and gunning for it.

We have tried to hustle some sweet rewards to gift you in return for your generosity, take a look!

We have made it! We have reached our Goal! 

But it doesn't end here - this was the bare minimum that we needed to cover costs. All extra money pledged will go directy into getting higher quality Production and Camera equipment which will improve and enhance the quality of our Film.

 

Thank you so much for the Amazing support so far.

We could not make this film without you.
