As a child, Hana saves a baby honu from certain death. From that day on, they become best friends. Soon the day comes when they must part ways. Hana is becoming a man, and his honu has become a full grown turtle who must go back to the open ocean. Later, as a young man, Hana meets his honu again when it is he who is saved by honu.

Together, they journey the ocean together in search of adventure.
