Fuga Island, a small island off the northern tip of Luzon in the Philippines, has attracted visionaries, dreamers and schemers for centuries. After years of abuse at the hands of wealthy landlords trying to make the island into a playground for the rich, the islanders live in limbo. There are no doctors and few educational opportunities. The people have no rights to the land they have lived on for generations.

Canadian Karie Garnier and his Filipina wife Violeta have devoted their lives to helping the people of Fuga Island overcome some of the horrible conditions they face. Now doctors visit the area and children leave the island to attend secondary schools. The next challenge-ownership of the land-pits Karie and the islanders up against powerful forces. But there is hope as Karie, and the Filipino activists who have joined him, strive for justice.
