For many of us French Polynesia can be summed up in one picture postcard island: Tahiti, with its beaches of white sand, a lagoon, fabulous underwater world and an easy way of life. And yet, all over this vast maritime country, daily life for most people is no Robinson Crusoe idyll.

Through the daily lives of a Tahitian botanist, a Marquesas doctor and a family of amateur sailors who left the Paris region to sail around the world, we meet the people who experience a different Polynesia, far from the clichés and the post cards.

From the Marquesas to Tuamotu, by way of the Society archipelago, we discover the interior life of Polynesia, far from the beaten tracks of the tourists.
