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.

Trama: Sobborghi di Auckland, Nuova Zelanda. La turbolenta famiglia Heke è composta dal padre Jake, detto 'la furia', violento e irascibile, dalla coraggiosa madre Beth, che subisce le angherie del marito con paziente rassegnazione, e dai cinque figli, Grace, Nig e Boogie (invischiati nel pericoloso giro delle bande giovanili), Polly e Huata. Dopo essere stata malmenata da Jake per essersi rifiutata di preparare un caffè all'amico Bully, Beth riceve la notizia che Boogie è stato portato in riformatorio senza che lei potesse presentarsi in tribunale a causa delle ecchimosi lasciatele dal pestaggio. Jake alterna momenti di violenza ad altri di illusoria tenerezza: in uno di questi, dopo aver vinto una discreta somma ai cavalli, decide di accompagnare Beth e i ragazzi a trovare Boggie, ma durante il viaggio il lodevole proposito dell'uomo si smarrisce inesorabilmente: a un certo punto si ferma nel locale che è solito frequentare con i suoi amici e si rifiuta di proseguire oltre. Grace, vedendo la remissività - che la ragazza reputa ipocrita - della madre, le urla in faccia tutto il suo disgusto. Jake con gli amici del bar torna a casa tardi per continuare la bisboccia, ma uno di essi, Bully, si introduce nella stanza di Grace e la stupra. La ragazza, sconvolta, cerca conforto nell'amico Toot, ma per via di un innocente bacio si spaventa e scappa via. Quando Grace rientra in casa prima trova Jake con i suoi amici. Qui il padre, di fronte al rifiuto di dare un bacio all'infido "zio Bully", malmena la ragazza, la quale, sconvolta, esce di casa e si impicca. Beth decide di seppellirla nel suo paese natale di nobili tradizioni guerriere maori, gli indigeni della Nuova Zelanda. Al ritorno a casa, Beth, leggendo il diario di Grace, scopre l'orribile verità e si reca al bar in cui Bully si trova in compagnia di Jake. Il marito di Beth dapprima esige rispetto per l'amico, ma quando capisce cosa c'è dietro aggredisce selvaggiamente Bully lasciandolo a terra in fin di vita Beth se ne va con i figli per tornare nella terra dei suoi illustri avi, lasciando Jake in attesa che arrivi la polizia
