AT BERGER PARK 6205 N Sheridan RD

Meet Junior Boy, a young man who comes from a lineage of pakalolo (cannabis) growers on the North Shore of O'ahu. He is proudly expecting a baby with his girlfriend, Nani. At home he talks story with his girlfriend, best friend, and grandfather during a night of karaoke, beer, and weed. The medical uses, benefits, and cultural aspects of marijuana in pre-contact Hawai'i are explored. What happens next is unexpected and heartbreaking as we witness Junior Boy's struggle to do what he believes is best for his 'ohana.
