The island of Diego Garcia was once a paradise to its natives, but four decades ago they were ousted from their land for good.

On a paradise island in the Indian Ocean, the traditional way of life is crumbling fast. It’s 1968, and British and American colonialists have begun expelling the inhabitants from their beloved home.
