The protagonists of ‘A Tale of Two Hippies’ are Mora Omen and Andrux, two veteran and well-known characters of the bohemian landscape of the island. The fashion designer, who worked in a well known bar in Port Vila, ‘El Mono Desnudo’, makes a momentarily appearance in one of the scenes of ‘Summer Night Fever’ (1978).
