A Candle Lights the Heart
Every Memorial Day thousands of people come together on a beach in Honolulu, Hawai'i to float candle-lit lanterns as an hommage to loved ones who have passed away. People are encouraged to write messages of love and remembrance to those who are gone while extolling life and connection. A Candle Lights the Heart follows these five families as they tell stories of those who they lost, how their grief impacted on their lives, and how the ceremony has helped them deal with their loss. The film not only focuses on these five families, it also describes the ritual, its history, and the process of producing this ever-expanding event.
