Tour guides in Hawaii host four men from Beijing, China, who attend the routine signing of an old Chinese man’s last will and testament, they have no idea that this will eventually thrust them into a surreal adventure that none of them could have ever imagined. For during this meeting the old man instructs the men to go to Hawaii and take in a number of travel tours, during which he contends they will find his long lost first love, a young Chinese woman who he had met during a glorious summer vacation when he was in college 75 years ago who he will bequeath his entire estate to. Of course, what could be written off as just the mere fantasy of a feeble old man gets very complicated. For first, he gets each of the men to personally promise that they will fulfill his request, and second, he subsequently dies right there in front of them. The experience alters their destiny and compels the men to go on what some would call a wild goose chase; for all they have to go on is a single photo of the man and his love, and the fact that her first name was “Li.” A great cross-cultural road movie, “Found In Hawaii” follows the exploits of two Hawaii tour guides and four Chinese tourists, who visit some of Hawaii’s most iconic sites in search of this mysterious woman, which will have them finding themselves. Writer: Eric Nemoto. Pages: 107.
