Storyline

Jonny Kealoha is the charismatic host of a struggling Waikiki Polynesian lū`au show. To everyone's surprise, including his own, he is appointed as the successor to a high school boy's hula class when his former Kumu Hula (master hula teacher) passes away. He becomes as much a student as a teacher through the demands of leading the boys to a significant cultural event and rediscovers the sanctity of the culture he had previously abandoned.

The Haumana Made me FALL IN LOVE WITH Hawaniian / Hula culture
26 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

I went for the movie without knowing what I would be expecting for but I left the theatre with my heart and mind totally inspired by the message expressed in the movie. The storyline seems to be simple yet you can surely relate to one part of the movie about Life and Sacrifice for something or someone you love dearly. before the movie, I almost knew nothing about what Hula meant in Hawaiian culture except it was a dance people always go to or talk about when it comes to Hawaii. After finishing the film, I was fascinated and touched. The acting is very good that you wont feel they were actually acting at all and of course the music is so soothing though I do not understand Hawaiian except Aloha and Mahalo!!

If it is playing in your neighborhood, do not miss it. You will fall in love with Hawaiian culture because of the film.
