The movie Moana is about a girl named Moana (meaning water). She wanted to adventure and explore but her father the chief of the island Motonui stopped her from doing so since she was supposed to become the next chief. Over some time the fish population of the island started to die and the crops stopped producing as much food. The natural resources of the island started to run out. According to the tales told by her grandmother Tala about Te Fiti the god of nature who can restore all the plants and trees of the world. Te Fiti cannot use her powers until her stolen heart is put back into place. Her heart was stolen by Maui the demigod who can shapeshift using his hook but he is stranded on another island. Moana decided to go find Maui and his hook so that he can restore Te Fiti’s heart which will bring back Te Fiti’s powers so that she can make plants and tree to produce the crops.
