It continues to highlight the impact he has had on the state of Hawaii and specifically on his home town Hilo.

ReelTime/TurnLeft Productions Co-Executive Producers Jackson Nguyen and Todd Crites remarked, "This was much more than just a film about the rise of a professional mixed martial artist and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champion. We were able to capture his early life as a young prodigy of the sport, his personal challenges and legacy and the impact B.J. has left on his hometown of Hilo, Hi. The filming was even more dramatic given the majestic backgrounds and heart felt candor of B.J. and his close family. This was a true privilege to be able to share with the world a side of B. J. that they probably never imagined."
