HONOLULU (KITV4) -- A new family adventure film shot entirely on location in O'ahu is set to be released on Tuesday, Jan. 11.

Along with a magical compass he inherited as a boy, the treasure map will lead to a powerful staff known to contain a mystical force that could destroy the island. But his greedy rival is determined to secure the staff’s powers for himself, leading to a cat-and-mouse game through the wild Hawaiian rainforest.
