Description

When Manata goes missing from her village, her people discover that she has been kidnapped by a giant. Her lover, Matakauri, sets off to rescue her, knowing that his people will never be safe until the giant is killed.
While the giant sleeps, Matakauri builds a fire around him. But what will happen when the fire is lit?
This is a beautiful retelling of the legend of how one of New Zealand's great lakes came to be.
