Synopsis...

When a fierce storm strikes Malio Island, the islanders ask their gods for a miracle. What they receive is an ornate canoe complete with a little baby boy. All that accompanies the child is a beautiful carved hair comb. The Malio chief decides that the baby boy is a gift from the gods and declares that the baby will be raised as his son. He names the boy Tama and pronounces him the future chief of Malio Island. The chief's wife is extremely jealous of the boy, who has taken the place of their son, Pua, and she begins to spread her resentful poison. As she gossips with the other women, the chief's wife claims that the child came from the god of mischief and blames Tama for all the misfortunes that befall the island. Soon the islanders follow her lead, and the boy is blamed for illnesses, failed crops, and no fish. The chief denounces the boy, and soon Tama is passed from family to family, finally ending up in the poorest house on the island. It is here that Tama comes to know Mahana and her father. Mahana is despised by her father and the islanders-they all see her as troublesome and undesirable. Tama, however, finds that she is a true gem and the two outcasts form a strong bond. When Tama finally has the means to escape the island, he leaves with a promise to one day return for Mahana. That promise is where is adventure begins...
