Summary

I Was a Simple Man is a ghost story set in the pastoral countryside of the north shore of O'ahu, Hawai'i. Revealed in four chapters, it tells the story of an elderly man facing the end of his life, visited by the ghosts of his past. Incorporating familial history and mythology, dream logic and surrealism, the film is a time-shifting kaleidoscope story of a fractured family facing the death of their patriarch that will take viewers from the high-rises of contemporary Honolulu to pre-WWII pastorals of O'ahu and, finally, into the beyond.
