The 2006 hit movie Hula Girl dominated film awards in Japan with its depiction of the birth of Japan's first resort park, themed on Hawaii and hot springs. Based on Spa Resort Hawaiians in Fukushima Prefecture, an area that suffered enormous damage in the Tohoku earthquake of March 2011. This film takes a documentary approach in following the resort's national hula dance tour, undertaken as a revitalization effort while fending off negative rumors. Shows the dancers who place their hopes in dance, narrated by Hula Girl actress Aoi Yu.
