SYNOPSIS

It is 1965 and in Japan, one by one the old mining towns begin there long slow decline. But for one small town way up north, one man's vision is to build Japan's first Hawaiian Village as a way to save the town. The only problem is that no one knows what the Hula is!
In this hilariously touching comedy based on the true story, the skepticism and conservatism of the locals is gradually overcome as their daughters are recruited as HULA GIRLS under one talented and determined dance instructor from Tokyo.
