There is nothing that keeps passionate social worker Wolski in Germany. With hard work he has prepared his escape: On an uninhabited island in the Kingdom of Tonga he wants to give criminal teenagers a second chance. His first candidate is Marcel, 16 years old and no stranger to drugs, violence and crime.
From now on, living equals struggling for Wolski. Struggling with a boy who wants everything except staying on an uninhabited island with him. Wolski tries to build something up, Marcel tries to destroy it. A visit to the main island ends in disaster. Wolski only narrowly manages to keep the boy from being send to prison. The deal: From now on, Marcel is not allowed to leave the remote island at all.
„Somewhere in Tonga“ is based on a true story.
