RUNNING FOR GRACE—staring Jim Caviezel and Matt Dillon—is set in the 1920s on the Big Island. It tells the story of a young orphan named Jo, who is half Japanese and half “haole” (Caucasian). In the age of legal and cultural discrimination, both communities reject him. Eventually the new plantation doctor (Matt Dillon) takes him under his wing. Jo becomes the “medicine runner” for the Japanese Issei coffee pickers and eventually wins over the community of immigrant farmers. However, Jo’s forbidden love for the plantation owner’s daughter “Grace” brings the whole community to a boiling point.
