Synopsis: Jonny Kealoha is the charismatic host of a struggling Waikīkī Polynesian lū`au show. To everyone's surprise, he is appointed as the unlikely 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.
