Johnny Lingo, or Tau, as he was called as a child, was orphaned as a baby. He was passed from household to household as families grew tired of him. He was blamed for a wide variety of curses that befell the community and soon found himself living at the least desirable home on this small South Seas island. It was there he came to know Mahana and her father who blamed his daughter for his wife's death in childbirth.
Fellow islanders have come to see Mahana through her father's eyes -- as troublesome and undesirable. However, Tau and Mahana, the two outcasts, form a strong bond. When Tau finds the wherewithal to leave the island on a canoe he has built, he promises to return one day for Mahana.
Eight years later, Johnny Lingo has the means to return for Mahana. He has learned a lot about life and is determined to win Mahana's heart. But he has devised a plan that enables him to also make a long-overdue point with those who for so many years treated both him and Mahana with such malice. Johnny's point? That real beauty comes from within. Most importantly, however, Johnny has found a way to honor Mahana, and in fact, to honor love itself."
