Indonesia: Mentawai/Andy Wraith

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.
The Mentawai live deep in the jungle on a remote island off the coast of Indonesia -- a monogamous tribe where women are tattooed and sharpen their teeth. Their lives are dominated by the spirit world and male sikerei, or witch doctors, watch over the village. Living with them for the next month is 38-year-old Andy Wraith. Andy is deeply-driven. Not happy with just being a dentist, she's also qualified as a doctor and an anaesthetist. She has run marathons, rowed for her university and fenced for Britain. But she realizes that she has a problem. In her cluttered and successful world, she seems to have forgotten herself. Amongst the Mentawai, high-flying Andy is adopted as a daughter of the tribe, and is forced to revaluate just what success means.
