Mister Pip Synopsis

It is the year 1991. Bougainville is a small village on a lush tropical island in the South Pacific. Eighty-six days have passed since Matilda's last day of school as, quietly, war is encroaching from the other end of the island. Bougainville's children are surprised to find the island's only white man, a recluse, re-opening the school.
