Alex, an aspiring 20-year-old filmmaker, hooks up with his friend, Gnome--an Anglo Hawaiian who runs a comic book store in Venice Beach, CA--to make a film about freeing Hawaii of the dominating Anglo culture. After various romantic and financial misadventures all the pieces come together, except two things: the script and Gnome. Finally, Gnome, admitting to being unable to handle so much self-reflection, sends a post card from Hawaii. He has given up. Alex is then left to settle into a mature romantic relationship and find a modest--but real--job in the film industry.
