Retreating to the remote community of Haleiwa, Hawaii after an unexpected and jarring failure, a young man falls in love with a powerfully timeless beauty, and an ostensibly simple job he finds to support himself. When his old life beckons, will he be willing to make the necessary sacrifices for a new existence he believes to be infallible? A visually stunning work, THE TOLL OF THE WEST provides a rare, inside perspective on a unique enclave of paradise, a Never Never Land of fabled waves and hedonism that is also part of a modern world of unprecedented changes and pressures, at the same time as exploring how profoundly our work affects us on our journey through life.He had just dropped his a#39;89 Toyota Corolla off at the shop at the other end of Haleiwa town. ... several weeks, and finally, two days ago, the radiator had blown its cap when he had gotten stuck in traffic, sending hot coolant all over the engine and steam billowing out from under the hood. ... What kind of loan could he afford ?
