About Heart Strings

On a little island in the middle of the Pacific, two girls face a big storm, a clash of cultures, and the knots of sibling rivalry. Following the treasured Hawaiian tradition of adoption, the hanai children untangle what it means to be family and learn the commitments and responsibilities that come with loving someone. Set in a Hawaii before statehood, the story is told using the simple and beautiful hei, Hawaiian string figures which are like Cat’s Cradle, and teaches that family is defined by how people take care of one another.

"heart" "strings" trope pulls all together, Great staging, Entertaining, Enchanting, Exquisite

See it if exquisite use of trope of pulling on one's "heart" "strings" wound through the theme, story, setting, hawaiian tradition, tying all together

Don’t see it if There's no reason not to see beauty in this show; should be tweaked a little to bring to adult audiences as well as families.

Tugs at your heart

See it if Touching story between two girls not related by blood but tied together by family, culture, & love. I teared up. Kids liked the string games

Don’t see it if Kid show but adults also enjoyed it, distracting sounds and movements from kid audience, non-WASP "traditional" families aren't your thing.
