The seed of Soto Zen Buddhism was planted in Hawaii over 100 years ago, and has grown into a unique flower seen nowhere else in the world.

We explore our hopes and goals for the future to create a better world for our children. This film’s stories of love and compassion provide us with a deeper appreciation for and understanding of our existence.
