Eleven year-old Ho‘onani dreams of leading the hula troupe at her school in Honolulu. The only trouble is that the group is just for boys. She’s fortunate that her teacher, Kumu Hina, understands first-hand what it means to be ‘in the middle’ – the Hawaiian custom of embracing both male and female spirit. As they prepare for a big end-of-year performance, student and teacher reveal that it’s what’s in one’s heart that matters most. An inspiring story of an ancient tradition that supports those who are different – from a young person’s point of view.
