Pono is a little Hawaiian Menehune, a mythological people known for their short stature and being very adept builders and crafters. He lives with his friends in Mrs. Miyamoto’s garden, playing little pranks like hiding gardening tools and moving objects around. One day, Mrs. Miyamoto trips on a displaced garden hose and breaks her foot. A guilty Pono starts to question his behavior, wondering why he and his friends play pranks on the human giants. Will Pono continue to cause mischief like his friends, or will he take a righteous path and make amends?
