Jonny Kealoha, is a washed-up and alcoholic Waikiki Polynesian entertainer. One day, he is summoned by the ailing Auntie Margaret, his long-time hula teacher (kumu). She wants Jonny to be the new instructor to a group of male students. He finds that he has to earn their trust, which is challenging given that they think he knows nothing more than cheesy Waikiki tunes. Jonny doubts his own ability, retaining very little from his youth as a pupil. All he has is a binder full of loose leaf notes.
