When a prince is cursed to become an eel and has to win the love of a beautiful woman to become human again, he gifts her with his body in the form of a coconut palm tree in a seductive display.

 

Set on Rotuma in Fiji, this classic tale of unconditional love is given new meaning and relevance today as it explores issues of conservation, tradition versus freedom, and prejudice against black skin among Polynesians.

 

P.S. Sina and Tinirau are two mythological icons in Rotuman oral literature. Sina is a very beautiful woman while Tinirau is a handsome man. Both names often appear in Rotuman poetry and legends.
