Papua New Guinea is rife with unemployment, crime 
and tribal feuds
In a society where violent crime, crumbling infrastructure and murderous tribal feuds are all too common, People & Power looks at whether Papua New Guinea is falling apart.

This month, the remote poverty-stricken South Pacific country of six million people held general elections, the first since the corrupt polls of 2002.

Speaking to politicians, victims and robbers, filmmaker Hywel Davies follows the election trail around the violent capital, Port Moresby, and up to the country's notorious tribal region, the Highlands, to discover what future this impoverished nation – and her people – have.
