The story focuses on her isolation from the outside world, and the numerous suitors that seek her hand. Among them is Kaua‘i chief ‘Aiwohikupua (played by Ioane Goodhue), who brings his Maile sisters, renowned for their fragrant scents, to help him woo the princess. Ultimately failing, he leaves his sisters behind. Grief stricken and lost, they go to the princess for help. Eventually, a bond of sisterhood is formed between them that will help them weather the seemingly insurmountable challenges ahead. The show will be performed in ‘olelo Hawai‘i, the Hawaiian language.
