It is 1985 in Nu'uolemanusa/Village of the Sacred Owl, Western Samoa. Madonna's Like a Virgin rules the airwaves. Brilliant and inquisitive high school student and Star Trek fanatic, 17 1/2 year old Inosia Alofafua Afatasi, is sent by her mother to the capital, Apia, to buy three giant white threads. While she waits at the bus-stop, Mr. Ioane Viliamu, her teacher of Science and Mathematics and recent graduate of the University of Papua New Guinea and the pastor's eldest son, in turn, her spiritual brother, stops to offer her a ride in his red pick-up truck. Should she wait for the bus? Or should she accept the ride?
