Summary This film is a moving journey into the beauty and meaning of Hawaiian slack key music. Director Eddie Kamae's rare combination of master musician and cinematic storyteller is the key to showing how Hawaii's cultural traditions and the ki ho'alu guitar intertwine - and opening the door to greater love of that music.
