Maui, master of sailing, and the shapeshifting demigod, stole the heart to provide the humanity with the energy of creation. But, Te Fiti crumbled, and Maui was harassed by Te Kā, the volcanic demon, dropping mutually the heart and his magical large fishhook to the depths.
After a millennium, Moana, the offspring of Motunui’s head Tui, was selected by the ocean to give back the heart to Te Fiti. But, Tui came and takes away Moana, and this caused her to lose that heart. Moana’s mother, Sina, and Tui attempt to stay her far from the ocean and prepare for the ascension as an island’s chief. After years, Moana has been older, a light hits the island, decaying the coconuts and declining with the total fish being caught. Moana suggested to proceeds beyond the reef of the island to locate for most fish, and Tui forbids it. While Sina explained to Moana that his best friend and Tui attempt going beyond the reef, and the latter perished. The pet pig Pua and Moana attempts to conquer the reef and were overpowered by an ocean’s tides and wind up stranded back on Motunui.
