20 minutes by plane from modern Honolulu, lies a tiny settlement forgotten by time. Kalaupapa, a peninsula on the island of Molokai with its swaying palms, unspoiled beaches and stunning mountains is a paradise on earth, with a history from hell. Kalaupapa is a leprosy colony. This documentary focuses on the personal stories of the remaining leprosy patients and the celebration of life in the face of adversity.
