When 15 year old Kanalu Young takes a dive into shallow water he becomes quadriplegic, paralyzed from the neck down.

Angry and defiant through months of rehabilitation, he begins to change when he learns the Hawaiian language and discovers a hidden story of Hawai‘i's past. He earns a PhD, gets arrested fighting for Native Hawaiian rights, and becomes a passionate teacher and leader who instills pride in his people.

Panel discussion after the screening facilitated by filmmaker and professor, Marlene Booth.
