Summary:
On a tropical island, an orphan boy named Tama is "cursed" by his tribe and finds comfort in fellow outcast: Mahana, a fiesty girl shunned for her ragged appearance. When Tama sails off in search of a new life, he promises a tearful Mahana to return for her someday. Tama's journey leads him to Johnny Lingo, a wealthy trader who makes Tama his apprentice and heir. Now as Tama embraces his new life, he must learn that the measure of a man is not in his possessions but in love, friendship and - in Tama's case - honoring a promise from the past.

Summary

Summary

When a small boy is mythically delivered to a remote Polynesian island and named Tama, he's received with equal amounts of joy and fear -- the former from the island tribe's chief, the latter from the chief's wife, who notes that the new boy is taking favored status away from their own, biological son. Thus, Tama is ostracized and cast away from his beloved adoptive island, but makes it his goal in life to return to reclaim his true childhood love, Mahana. The Legend of Johnny Lingo was brought to the screen in part by producer John Garbett. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
