Faka’anaua is surrounded by family as they prepare for a funeral that turns out to be traditional only in appearance. To her dismay, Faka’anaua witnesses light-fingered relatives trying to steal a ring off the finger of the corpse, but when she tries to tell her Grandmother she is silenced and given chores to do. To prevent the loss of the jewellery, Faka’anaua takes matters into her own hands.
