A young, multi-racial Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) woman, filmmaker Christen Hepuakoa Marquez, sets out to discover the meaning of her incredibly lengthy Hawaiian name from her estranged mother (whose diagnosis as schizophrenic in the 80s caused their family separation). Christen discovers not only her self within the name, but gains a whole new perspective on the idea of sanity and how cultural differences can sometimes muddle its definition.
