    Matthew King was once considered one of the most fortunate men in Hawaii. His missionary ancestors who came to the islands were financially and culturally progressive - one even married a Hawaiian princess, making Matt a royal descendant and one of the state's largest landowners. But now his luck has changed. His two daughters are out of control: 10-year-old Scottie has a smart-ass attitude, and 17-year-old Alex is a recovering drug addict. His thrill-seeking and high-maintenance wife, Joanie, lies in a coma.
