Directed by Lance Hool, it is based on the true story of Christopher Gregory, a college student, and Jorge Bacardi, of the Bacardi rum empire.

He was used to receiving an “expiration date” every few years as he required a double lung transplant, which seemed impossible because he was on the waiting list for such a long time.

In Hawaii, the production team chose the following places to film ‘2 Hearts’ – Kapolei, Ko Olina Marina, Kualoa Beach, and Waikiki. Cinematographer Vincent De Paula took to Instagram to share a moment captured during the filming in Hawaii!
The team really enjoyed the beauty and the history of the place. They hiked to different water holes, which are like an extension of the ocean. The feeling of being so close to nature and appreciating life took a whole new meaning, especially with the kind of story they were working on. Jacob, Jordan, and Tiera flew to the state a couple of days ahead of filming since Tiera had never been to Hawaii. They drove around to savor the traditional Hawaiin cuisine at different restaurants and also indulged in a little bit of adventure by jumping off cliffs.
Jacob Elordi met Christopher’s parents for the first time in Hawaii when a major part of the film was already shot. This made him very nervous as he became doubtful of his portrayal as Christopher. The fact that he reminded the Gregory family of their son really meant a lot to him. He wanted to make sure that he made them proud, so he carried the story forward with love.
