The Other Side of Heaven is a movie that shows the strength of human spirits amidst trials. It is adventure and drama. It shows the struggles of an American who was chosen to travel to Tonga, a Polynesian island, to be a Mormon missionary, and spread its teachings. The movie starts with a scene that shows the main character, John Groberg, dancing with his girlfriend, Jean Sabin. John Groberg learns of his mission. Before he sets off, John and Jean committed to write to each other, and this is how some of the narratives of the story unfolds. Getting to Tonga itself was not easy, as the hero of this movie gets sent to jail in Fiji before he even reaches the island itself. When John Groberg finally reaches his island destination, he realizes that spreading the mission is not going to be an easy task. He had to get past the initial obstacle of his mission in the island, which is the language that the islanders speak. He was also met with resistance by the local leader who ends up contriving ways to stop Groberg from accomplishing his mission. Each scene unfolds, depicting how John Groberg succeeds through all the trials, perils, baits and deceits that the island has to offer to stop him in his tracks. Through it all, John struggles to reach the end and fulfill his destiny.
