Hawaii on the Rocks
Hawaii on the Rocks is an illustrated documentary film that follows the crystal meth epidemic that began sweeping the islands in the 1980s, and continues to this day. It's the story of the federal drug war gone wrong, a Native Hawaiian community battling addiction, and a brutal murder in the director's family that reverberated across the state.
