    A series of stories of Micronesians who have left the islands to take up life in the US. Many live in the Hawaii, but others live in mainland US. A few have spent long years in the US military. Some have gone on to run their own businesses. One or two see their main role as caretakers–of their own families and of their fellow island migrants. All have words of advice to offer others who find themselves living abroad. Yet, in the end, the most important thing these individuals have to share with their island people is their own inspiring story. Most of these individuals live comfortably in their new home, although not many of them would call themselves well-to-do. If they can be described as success stories, it is not so much because of the money they made or the job responsibilities their bear as their determination to forge strong ties with their new community while cultivating their old bonds with the people back home.

Told in their own voices, the documentary presents a contrasting view to the negative media coverage of the Micronesian experience in Hawaii, and the US mainland.

                      Kosrae is an off the beaten path, divers paradise. If Fiji is the 'soft coral capital' of the world then Kosrae is the 'hard coral capital' of the world. The diving is easy with pristine reefs and abundant sea life. The Kosrae Nautilus Resort is the nicest on the island. The owners, Doug and Sally, are very hospitable and offered wonderful food in the dining room and very nice lodging. The staff is very friendly and ready to make your stay enjoyable. There is a lot to do on land and Doug will set up any day trips that you request. Luckily it is difficult to get to so the reefs will continue to remain intact and beautiful.
