Synopsis

Tanna berlatar di Pasifik Selatan tempat Wawa, seorang gadis dari salah satu suku tradisional terakhir, jatuh cinta dengan cucu kepala suku, Dain. Ketika perang antar suku semakin berkecamuk, tanpa sepengetahuannya, Wawa telah dijodohkan untuk kepentingan perdamaian.  Sepasang kekasih itu pun kabur tetapi mereka tertangkap oleh prajurit musuh yang bermaksud membunuh mereka. Mereka harus memilih antara hati atau masa depan suku mereka.

Tanna is set in the South Pacific where Wawa, a young girl from one of the last traditional tribes, falls in love with her chief’s grandson, Dain. When an intertribal war escalates, Wawa is unknowingly betrothed as part of a peace deal. The young lovers run away, but are pursued by enemy warriors intent on killing them. They must choose between their hearts and the future of the tribe.
