Uptight New York writer Jack Christie has just inherited his grandfather’s estate, including a small publishing house he never knew Cameron Christie owned. Among Cameron’s papers is the deed to an old house on the remote island of Molokai --they call it the last Hawaiian Island -- and a court summons. Cameron Christie is being sued by relatives of one of the last remaining survivors of the former leper colony, Kalaupapa. Cameron published a journal sent to him by the man who relatives say could not have written the book since he does not have the use of his hands and is senile. In an effort to hold onto the small amount of money that he’s inherited, his grandfather’s hard-earned business, not to mention Cameron’s reputation, Jack reluctantly travels to Molokai to solve the mystery. This shut-down New Yorker encounters more than he bargained for on this island shaped by myth and magic in the form of Alaka’i a man who begins to appear in his dreams. His fantasy world with Alaka’i becomes more and more real, confusing and frightening Jack, who has always managed to keep his emotions under control.
