Storyline

Matthew Matt King is a Honolulu-based attorney and the sole trustee of a family trust of 25,000 acres of pristine land on Kauai. With the trust expiring in seven years due to the rule against perpetuities, the King clan is pressuring Matt to sell the land for hundreds of millions of dollars. Two close family friends, Kai and Mark Mitchell, tell Matt that Elizabeth was unhappy and loved Brian Speer, a real estate agent, and wanted a divorce.
