    • Synopsis
    • A five-­‐-­‐-­‐story tree house built by a local Hawaiian family over many decades is nestled deep in the subterranean backwoods of Hawaii’s rain-­‐-­‐-­‐soaked Manoa valley. For generations, encounters with armed spirit warriors or Hawaiian night marchers (huak’ipo) believed to be en route to and from ancient battle have occurred on the family homestead, inspiring profound spiritual experiences for those who have come into contact with the primeval Hawaiian ghosts.

      Pono, the youngest of three boys, is the heir of family traditions and his father’s Hawaiian culture, at least in his father’s eyes. Pono’s Caucasian mother, however, is never fully able to embrace the family practices and customary beliefs. After a tragic event, however, Rachel is forced to remain in a life that she has come to despise, on land that she has refused to embrace and in a culture that she’s never been able to fully appreciate. Can Rachel reconcile her guilt and grief and ultimately bridge the gap between Christianity/religion and Hawaiian spirituality through Pono’s cultural knowledge, the son she blames for her family’s tragic event?
