In the Samoa Islands, rugby is played with natural and disconcerting joy. The sport here is unbridled, free, without any tactics. As in New Zealand, it is the number one sport, practiced by every schoolboy.

Shot during the intensive training of the Samoans before the 1995 World Cup, this film is a unique insider look at the adrenalin filled atmosphere surrounding the national team and at the passion devouring a whole people for its favourite sport.
