ABOUT THE FILM

One of Hawaiʻi's last pristine shorelines is about to be turned into a large resort, and group of close friends, The Fishing Club, are determined to stop it. They come up with a bold plan to “Keep the Country Country”, but do they go too far? This film was shot in the caves, back roads, forests and streams of Oʻahu, but it could have happened anywhere in Hawaiʻi - or around the world.
