“What’s Aloha,” explores the deeper meaning of Aloha.

It is a story of universal appeal confronting the nuances of love and PTSD consequences of war based on real-life experiences of mana and living in paradise that yields lessons to be resonated globally.

We’re transported to Hawaii, present day where we meet Maile Martinez and Michael Jordan at their worst, best, and somewhere in the middle.

On the beautiful island of Oahu… Maile is a recently graduated architect and a genuinely gifted woman raised in Hawaii. She recently made some bold decisions to choose Aloha by leaving her affluent job and live-in boyfriend, which ultimately left her unexpectedly homeless and living in her car. She now works as a Lyft driver and continues to seek opportunities to bounce back and live within her purpose.
