The inspiring story of Hina Wong-Kalu, a transgender native Hawaiian teacher who brings to life Hawaii's traditional embrace of 'mahu' - those who embody both male and female spirit. The film traces Hina's evolution from a timid high school boy to a married woman and powerful community leader who inspires a young female student to claim her place as leader of the school's all-male hula troupe.

Interesting and touching. And the charter school at the center of the story is also intriguing. I haven't thought before about the fate of the native Hawaiians when the whites arrived (particularly the priests).

The story is really about accepting our differences. Powerful and moving at the same time. Well done!
