Finding 'Ohana


Geocache champion Pilialoha "Pili" Kawena, age 12, is abruptly lifted from her busy New York life and dropped into rural O'ahu to help care for her grandfather. Initially skeptical about her new surroundings, Pili finds a cryptic pirate's journal in her Papa's studio hinting at a 200-year-old shipwrecked treasure hidden away in the island's caves and mountains. With her older brother and new friends in tow she uses her clue solving skills to lead them on an adventure of a lifetime through the natural wonders of Hawai&#699i. As she learns to respect and love her native culture she also discovers not all secrets should be shared and that the real treasure in life is 'ohana - her family.




Finding 'Ohana



Finding 'Ohana stars Kea Peahu as Pili, Alex Aiono as Ioane, Lindsay Watson as Hana, Owen Vaccaro as Casper, Kelly Hu as Leilani, Ke Huy Quan as George Phan, Ricky Garcia as Monks, Ryan Higa as Ryan, Mapuana Makia as Nurse Tina, Brad Kalilimoku as Kua Kawena, X Mayo as Melody, and Kyndra Sanchez as Yoli. The movie marks the first time that Aiono and Peahu have acted. Netflix made it a priority to "cast of predominantly Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders, even if it meant finding a lot of newcomers for the large ensemble."


Ioane (Alex Aiono) is the too-cool-for-school older brother, who is more worried about scuffing his shoes than finding caches of gold. They are lucky to have Hana (Lindsay Watson) along to help, especially since she understands the spiritual side of the island and its mythology. This film shows how we can have a beautiful connection to the land that goes beyond simply living in a place. 041b061a72
