Notes:
Mahina Moku is sinking. Its queen has arranged a marriage for her son, Akoni, to the princess of a neighboring island, in hopes of moving her people there. Akoni worries the move will mark the end of their historic culture. Knowing that certain death will come if they stay, the Queen gives in to her son’s desire by setting an impossible task: he may marry the woman who shatters the moon.
