But that is just the beginning. Will she ever be able to return to her village? And who is this mystical deity that haunts her dreams? A terrible volcanic eruption turns her life up side down and Puna finds herself facing the phantom in the flesh. Is he just a man as he claims, or is he Kamapua'a; the Pig God?
