The vastness of our planet's oceans guards unimaginable secrets. One of
its most precious is Kaluoka'hina, the enchanted reef whose magic
protects it against humans finding it. Kaluoka'hina's colorful
inhabitants have thus always lived in peace... until the volcano erupts,
and the spell is broken. Now it's up to the young sawfish Jake and his
paranoid pal Shorty to restore the magic of Kaluoka'hina. Their only
lead: the 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 have to solve on their most exciting
adventure ever: the quest to save their beloved reef. Recommended for
elementary school ages and up. 32 minutes.
