Workaholic Mike grudgingly minds the kids while his wife, legal assistant Emma Burke, flies to Hawai with ashes of Lily, the native who raised her and came to Boston with her. On the minor Hawaian island, Emma finally gets acquainted (again) with her family, and decides to stay, also to help with their flower nursery's legal problems. She also learns her biological mother is alive and well on the island, but refuses to talk to her now and starts an ill-considered affair with handsome cousin Kala. Mike flies in with the two children, complicating everything further.
On a trip to paradise, one woman discovers everything she has... may not be everything she desires.

When Kala takes Emma to see the family altar, he rests his right hand on the altar and reaches to put down the flowers he's holding in his left hand. There's a closeup of his hand placing the flowers down, and they're suddenly in his right hand. See more
