Bruce Golding is an Australian photo journalist with an international reputation as a “man of steel” because of his ability to go from one warzone to another. But he is heading unwittingly to a nervous breakdown. It occurs on a Pacific island just devastated by a tsunami. But there he also falls in love, and learns that a large tourist corporation is planning to take over the “undeveloped” island in a way he knows will be catastrophic for the islanders. He finds redemption in trying to save the islanders.
