Stella Artois

It's 1940 in Hawaii. Barbara Kim is 8-years-old living in a friendly community of diverse cultures and ethnicities. She’s raised by her widowed mother, a first-generation Korean immigrant who’s a hard-working, skillful dressmaker and successful businesswoman. At an early age, Barbara dreams of becoming a broadcaster, but life takes an unexpected twist when her mother falls ill. Barbara’s priorities change as she supports her ailing mother and pays for her mounting hospital bills. While Barbara makes a career change to be by her mother's side, a popular TV show needs to find a new host. The producer conducts months of auditions without finding the right replacement. He begins to lose hope until he makes an important discovery that leads him to Barbara Kim.
