WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

It's 1913, Hawaii and two immigrant fishermen, Nishi and Aoki, are lonely and bored with only catching fish. Nishi sends for a picture bride from Japan, but sneaks a photo of his handsome friend in his place. The brides arrive and fall in love — with the wrong man — setting off a comedy of errors with mistaken identity, tragic drowning, seeming betrayal and a final surprise turn of events, colorfully visualized with mime and movement. Like Horton Foote whose family dramas define Texas country life, septuagenarian Sakamoto, specializes in the rich fabric of Hawaiian myth and language in exploration of migration and family dynamics
