Onipaʻa tells the story of Liʻi, who during the pandemic finds himself the lone caretaker of a kalo (taro) farm or loʻi. With news of the loʻi being leveled for development, Liʻi looks to his son to be the caretaker for the next generation, but, like most others, his son has also lost interest in this longstanding cultural practice. Liʻi must look within himself to overcome his prejudice and share his cultural legacy with a young caucasian boy.
