Overview

The Park City Library and the Park City Film Series are partnering to provide free movies based on books geared towards young people. A contemporary story of love, rejection and triumph as a young Maori girl fights to fulfill a destiny her grandfather refuses to recognize. On the east coast of New Zealand, the Whangara people believe their presence there dates back a thousand years or more to a single ancestor, Paikea, who escaped death when his canoe capsized by riding to shore on the back of a whale. From then on, Whangara chiefs have always been the first-born and male. A feisty young girl named Pai, who radiates with life and energy is about to challenge tradition.
