One rainy day, Emma put on her surf shirt and went outside to play.

So begins Emma’s great adventure. The simple auwai, or canal, next to her house fills with rainwater and becomes a rushing river full of imaginary creatures for Emma to encounter and escape.

Join Emma on her rainy day adventure in Hawaii when the ordinary becomes extraordinary. It’s a story of imagination and having fun, even when it rains.
