Hina, a young, female transsexual teacher from Hawaii, defends the traditional ‘mahu’ image symbolising both the masculine and feminine spirit. The film narrates the transformation of Colin Wong, a shy secondary school pupil, now Hina, a married woman and cultural director of a school in Honolulu. Ho’onari, a little girl with a big personality, wishes to join Hula’s male troop, Hina gives her the chance to express the masculine side to her soul. Pupils and teachers prepare a show not without difficulty.
