Matthew King descends from Hawaiian royalty and his clan owns a huge swathe of land on Kauai. Life is no paradise. His adrenaline-junkie wife Liz is lying in a vegetative state after a water-skiing accident. Doctors tell him there is no hope of recovery and they must turn off the life-support machines once everyone has said their goodbyes. Weighed down with this sad news, Matthew gathers together his precocious 10-year-old daughter Scottie and his rebellious 17-year-old daughter Alex.
