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 a desperate need for attention and 17-year-old Alex, a former model, is a recovering drug addict. His thrill-seeking and high-maintenance wife, Joanie, lies in a coma after a boat racing accident, and will soon be taken off life support. The King family can hardly picture life without their charismatic mother, but as they come to terms with this tragedy, their sadness is mixed with a sense of freedom that shames them--and spurs them into surprising actions

Anwalt Matt King (George Clooney) und seine Frau Elizabeth (Patricia Hastie) führen eine nach außen hin normale Ehe. Beruflich erfolgreich, kümmern sie sich in erster Linie um ihre eigenen Karrieren. Matt verwaltet für seine weitläufige Familie ein traumhaftes Grundstück auf Hawaii, das schon im Besitz der Hawaiianischen Könige und Missionare war und von Generation zu Generation weitergegeben wurde. Während er den äußerst lukrativen Verkauf der Ländereien vorbereitet, stürzt die Familie jäh in eine tiefe Krise: Nach einem schweren Bootsunfall fällt Elizabeth ins Koma und Matt erfährt von seiner 17jährigen Tochter Alexandra (Shailene Woodley), dass seine Frau ein ernstzunehmendes Verhältnis zu einem anderen Mann hatte. Für den seiner Familie entfremdeten Matt bricht eine Welt zusammen. Er muss sich plötzlich um die beiden Töchter kümmern, die Vergangenheit überdenken und seine Zukunft neu ordnen. Zusammen mit Alexandra, ihrem etwas eigenwilligen Freund Sid (Nick Krause) und seiner vorlauten Tochter Scottie (Amara Miller) begibt Matt sich auf die Suche nach dem Liebhaber seiner Frau. Dabei kommt er seinen Töchtern wieder näher
