An intolerant Governor sets off a series of tragic events in an idyllic Pacific paradise, disrupting the peaceful lives of newlywed islanders Terangi and Marama. Terangi is wrongly imprisoned by racist officials and after many failed escape attempts, additional years are added to his original six month jail term. Terangi finally succeeds and returns to Marama after a long absence, but only to be confronted with one of the most savage natural disasters to ever hit the island.
