Ending
Off in New Zealand, the tribe's people believe that they arrived at their home led by Paikea riding a whale. Since then, tradition is the first-born male of Paikea's descendents would rule the tribe. Twins are born, but the boy and mom die during childbirth, and the surviving baby is a girl, Pai. Her grandpa, Koro, is stuck on tradition to find a male as a leader. Koro announces he is looking to train as the successor to the tribe's chieftain; several boys train with Koro, but when Koro challenges them to get the job by recovering his necklace he tossed into the sea, none of the boys are able to retrieve it. (Pai dives in and gets it, tells grandma she got it, but grandma waits for the right time to tell Koro.) Koro finds a bunch of whales beached, and the villagers try to push the biggest whale back to sea; no luck. Pai runs along, hops on the big one, and rides it out to sea (just like Paikea once did), and the other whales follow. Koro sees this, grandma gives him the necklace and tells him Pai recovered it. Koro is delighted, and hears news that Pai is alive and in a nearby hospital; he visits her and makes her the new tribe chieftain leader. Moving film reel
