• Eldest son of the prominent Vaipiti family, Maui has recently taken on the management of the pearl farm. Proud and determined, he refuses to ask for help from his father when the family business runs into trouble, preferring to solve the problem his own way. Tensions and jealousies are aroused between him and his sister, Aumea, when she starts questioning his competency in the role and, as he falls ever deeper for girlfriend Lara, he starts to question who he can really trust.
