According to press notes, "The year is 1860, and a devastating tsunami has stranded young Daphne on a strange island a thousand miles from her comfortable homestead. She soon encounters Mau, a native islander, whose village has been destroyed in the disaster. Together, they must teach each other and the villagers how to survive against the elements, fend off local enemies, and overcome their own differences."
