In a small coastal village, the Maori descend from Paikea, the Whale Rider. In every generation, a male heir has succeeded to the chiefly title. When twins are born, and the boy twin dies, the chief is unable to accept his grand-daughter, Pai, as a future leader. Koro, the chief, is convinced that the tribe's misfortunes began at Pai's birth and calls for people to bring their sons to him, sure a new leader will emerge. Pai loves Koro more than anyone in the world, but she must fight him and a thousand years of tradition to fulfill her destiny.
