In this short documentary, Emmy Award winning filmmaker, Matt Yamashita, injects himself into a story about the impacts of Covid-19, both on his small island community and in his personal life.
The pandemic puts a filmmaker’s (Matt Yamashita) thriving film career on hold, so he focuses his camera on his community and himself to document the unique impacts of the pandemic on a remote Hawaiian Island. When food and money starts running out, Matt turns to his skill as a fisherman to feed his family. Other Molokai residents and non-profits also turn inward and toward each other to find answers to unprecedented challenges. The pandemic is a turbulent time for everyone, but it also becomes an opportunity to strengthen relationships, regain inner peace, and reconnect with nature and community.
