Summary
Who are you? Where does your individual identity begin and end? While Western societies strive to answer these questions through a biological view--conception, adolescence, maturity, and death-- tribal cultures define identity by the myths and rituals of their society, by the people who rear them, and by an organic continuum to which they belong. This program explores these views of life and death through scenes taken from the family life of an abortion counselor in Canada, a boy's initiation into manhood in a Brazilian Xavante Indian Tribe, a high school girl's attempted suicide, and an Indonesian Sumbanese tribesman's relationship to his dead relatives
