The Enchanted Reef

"Kaluokahina, The Enchanted Reef" transports the viewer to a tropical reef, a one-of-a-kind world: colorful and foreign, full of adventure and danger, riddles and mysteries, old legends and myths... a world inhabited by creatures that are humorous and courageous, lovable and bizarre, charming and dangerous.

"Kaluokahina" is a tropical coral reef - an enchantment lies over this peaceful place: mankind cannot find it. The reef's colorful inhabitants have thus always lived in paradisiacal peace, until a volcanic catastrophe breaks the spell...

Now it's up to Jake, a young sawfish, and his buddy Shorty, a lively reef fish, to restore the magic of their home Kaluokahina. Their only lead: an ancient legend that tells of touching the moon... But how is a fish supposed to touch the moon? This is just one of the intriguing puzzles that Jake and Shorty will have to solve on their most exciting adventure ever: the quest to save their beloved reef.

Kaluokahina, The Enchanted Reef - a humorous adventure story for young and young-at-heart; entertaining and exciting, with many informative details about the fantastic world under water. Both a thrilling and educational film, which sharpens our awareness to preserve our environment. A true treat for the entire family.
