Rapa Nui synopsis

On Easter Island, the Long Ear tribe and its king (Eru Potaka-Dewes) rule over the Short Ear tribe, forcing them to build an endless series of giant heads to attract the canoe that will take the king to heaven. Noro (Jason Scott Lee), a Long Ear, falls in love with the beautiful Short-Ear Ramana (Sandrine Holt) and appeals to the king for her hand. The king agrees, provided Ramana spends six months in a cave and Noro wins the annual race that all young men on the island must enter.
