Documentary The Nicobars are a remote island group in the Indian Ocean. Their inhabitants have lived for the last 900 years with virtually no contact to the outside world – until the tsunami in December 2004 hit the archipelago with full force, followed shortly afterwards by a second wave of destruction: the flood of international aid. The well-meant support expelled the islanders from their pre-modern society into the world of the 21st century. Aid organisations left behind a society whose fundamental structures are broken. The film shows the uprooted inhabitants fighting to find a new identity.
