In the face of colonial erasure, one ‘ohana’s journey into the past reveals a hidden history about the Lost Kingdom of Hawai‘i and its forgotten heroes. Living on the mainland, the filmmaker’s family wrestles with the pain of diaspora and longs to reconnect with their culture. Reckoning with their hapa identities, they discover their ancestor was a trusted advisor to Queen Lili‘uokalani and native patriot who led the fight against annexation. This film tells a personal and national story about pride, resilience, a voice from the past that demands to be heard and the awakening of a new historical narrative.
