Isolated from the world and unaware of Pearl Harbor's devastation, natives on Hawaii’s “Forbidden Isle” of Niihau host a luau welcoming a Japanese fighter pilot whose plane crashed in their midst.  In the fragile days that follow, the pilot preys on the Japanese-Americans among the peaceful villagers aiming to capture Hawaii for the Emperor.

But when a crafty Hawaiian cowboy and his fearless wife stand up to the pilot’s growing brutality, all of Niihau rises up to defend itself against the invader, ultimately claiming America's first official victory of World War II.

But in Washington, the concealed and fateful events on a tiny island half a world away catapulted America into one of the darkest chapters in its history.  A quarter million U.S. citizens were moved to internment camps because they thought it proved Japanese-Americans weren't to be trusted during the War.  

The bizarre untold true story of The Ni’ihau Incident.
