Tonga: The Last Place On Earth (Episode #202)

KQED World: Tue, Apr 23, 2013 -- 5:00 AM

Tonga is a peaceful island nation, as distant from modernity as it is physically from the western world. Ethnic Tongans convicted of murder, gang violence and other serious crimes, are being deported from the United States to Tonga. Forced to leave behind spouses, children, and family, these convicts are sent to a homeland many know nothing about. Will they adapt and survive in a community that is wary to have them? And how will the influx of these hardened criminals change Tonga: The Last Place on Earth?
