In 2018, a shocking event made headlines around the world: a young American missionary, John Chau, was killed by arrows while attempting to contact one of the world's most isolated Indigenous peoples on remote North Sentinel Island.
This documentary uncovers the gripping story beyond the headlines.
Through exclusive interviews and with unprecedented access to Chau's secret plans, personal diaries and video archives, The Mission examines the mythology of exploration that inspired him, the evangelical community that supported his quest, and reveals his own father's heartbreak as Chau's youthful thirst for adventure became a fatal obsession.
Contradictory and divided reactions from the public and even within his own family reveal a deeper understanding of the real John Chau – a young man with an adventurous spirit and a singular obsession.
