The Legend of Johnny Lingo Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

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
