Nanaue the Teenage Sharkman meets Jocelyn on the beach and takes her on magical underwater adventures where she meets fish and other aquatic creatures. Jocelyn’s mother is thrilled that she has a new friend. After all, when Jocelyn’s father left the family, Jocelyn began retreating into the world of books and lives a lonely existence. When life begins to imitate art, Jocelyn’s mother becomes concerned and discovers a surprising fact.
Nationally acclaimed writer and director Moses Goods brings this touching and inspired tale to Hawaii’s youth, based on the legend of Nanaue. Nanaue’s father was Kamohoali’I, the King of Sharks, who falls in love with Kalei, a beautiful mortal from Waipi’o Valley.
