Bernard Maneboko, was born in a village in rural Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands. He had a bright future, attended a prestigious school, and had dreams of becoming a police officer.

But his dreams were disrupted on the cold December night in 1999, when the brigands broke into his family's home and burnt it to the ground. An ethnic crisis erupted on the Island of Guadalcanal.

Both parents gone and as the only child and survivor, he had to face life on his own. But that is not all - a logging company is heading for his village without his tribe's consent.

Teamed up with his peers, the BANDITS, he must fight the logging-mongers. In doing so, he dices with death - facing the ferocious mountain rebels, trading with the crooked Chinese merchants and eventually pleading his case with the Police.

In his search for answers, he exposes an horrific past, which positions him as the next potential target in the series of murders. Bernard must get to the root of it to stop the brutal killings.
