Struggling real-estate agent, Gary, wants to be a success. He's got a flash car, a fancy watch, now all he needs is the hot wife. But his girlfriend, Chloe, isn't keen. When Gary is called back to his homeland of Tusalava, he's handed a great opportunity, the chance to take his dying father's crown and become Chief of the island. With a treasury and tropical paradise to his name, Gary might be able to give Chloe the wedding she wants, and finally attain the complete success he's always yearned for, even if it is at the expense of his people.
