One tree, one man. There is only one remaining Tamarind tree left standing in the centre of Pirlangimpi, on the Tiwi islands. There is only one man left to tell its story. 90 year old Justin, elder and Master of Ceremony, is the last living link this community has to its centuries long history of trading goods, culture and even love with the seafaring Macassans.
