"MLABRI marry MLABRI". But what will young IDang do, when there are no Mlabri girls around? Chalat is leaving for boarding school. His mother asks: will he ever come back? As a child Chuwit roamed the jungles with his parents. He knows Mlabri life is about to change radically, and he wishes to have a say, but will he get a chance? There are 320 Mlabri people left on this planet. Right now they face the question: How does one adapt to a world full of Outsiders without disappearing?
