Jim White moves his family after losing his last job as a football coach. He sees that some of the students are worth starting a cross-country team and turns seven students with no hope into one of the best cross-country teams.
This is a great film for anyone wanting to know more about Hawaii and the aloha spirit. I was a bit skeptical about the prospect of seeing an independent film about a Hawaiian legend featuring a cast of unknown actors, but they blew me away with their talent. The dialog (including pidgin English) is wonderfully true to island cultural dynamics...both in aloha and in conflict. The depth of character development is exceptional, especially considering the youth of the writer. It is a fantastic "ride" on many levels...surfing the ocean and surfing time. Beautifully filmed and with outstanding costuming...an awesome film that I will recommend to everyone I know!
