Have you ever wondered why the delicate white flowers of the naupaka grow the way they do? Long, long ago, a love blossomed between two young villagers—Naupaka, a kind and beautiful Hawaiian princess, and Kau'i, a handsome and gentle commoner. Alas, society's ancient ways did not allow them to be together. Follow along their journey as they seek to find approval from the gods and discover the fate that befalls them.

In English and Hawaiian, also includes an audio CD featuring Nona and Keola Beamer.
