This documentary profiles the late Kanalu Young whose dive into shallow water at age 15 left him quadriplegic. Angry and defiant, he begins to change when he discovers an untold story of Hawaiian history which fires him up to become a leader of his people.. Winner of the Grand Jury Award for Best Short Documentary at the Guam International Film Festival.. "At long last, a portrait of both disability and Native Hawaiian identity at the crux of political activism and cultural pride. This loving tribute to Kanalu Young is a must-see for any student of disability identity and a most welcome addition to my disability studies classroom." - Katharina Heyer, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Hawai‘i
