‘Opihi are known to live by clinging to rocky shores and can withstand the mightiest waves. Amongst all snails and slugs, Hawaii loves the ‘opihi best of all.

Our story follows Iki, the littlest ‘Opihi.

Iki is too tiny to ever be in real danger, and tries his best to abide by what he has learned ever since he was born: to stick to it! Soon enough, he decides to go home with the help of Mister Crab. One day, a ‘Opihi picker visits Iki’s rock. Will he finally be able to “stick to it” to avoid a fatal outcome?
