Content: When a herd of whales get stranded at the north coast of New Zealand, Koro, the wise chieftain of the Maori tribe, is desperate. For he has no male successor who could save the holy and worshipped animals, thus restoring the honour of his people.  What he does not want to see though are the skills of Kahu, his little grand-daughter, who loves the sea and the old myths more than old Koro would tolerate: she alone is the descendant who will fulfil the prophecy of his people. (Source:
“Joost Siedhoff as the old chieftain filled with bitterness, Céline Vogt as self-assured Kahu, Regina Lemnitz as the chieftain’s resolute wife, Andreas Pietschmann as Rawiri, and Monika Bleibtreu as Walkun (narrator), they all give a very good performance. It’s with fascination that one listens to the story, and in doing so, time does fly.”
