Sydney:
So This Is It.

I'm Coming Home.

Sort Of.

I Mean, I Was Born Here,

But I Don't Remember

Anything.

We Left When

I Was Really Young,

And Dad Never Wanted

To Come Back,

Probably 'Cause Of Mom.

Sometimes I Think

I Remember Her,

But The Truth?

The Picture In My Head?

It's Probably

Some Old Photograph.

Elizabeth--

She's The Only Mom

I've Known Up Close.

Woman:
Ladies

And Gentlemen,

If You Look Out

The Left Side

Of The Aircraft,

You'll Get

An Excellent View Of

The Hawaiian Islands.

That's Kauai

To The Far Left,

And The Big Island

Of Hawaii On The Right.

Sit Back, Sydney.

Buckle Up.

Sydney:

I Know He Does It

Because He Cares,

Worrying Like That.

But Still...

Wow,

This Is Magical.

Yeah.

It Really Is.

Wow.

I'm Gonna

Look Around, Ok?

Man:
Paddle

A Bit More.

Sydney:
I Used To

Watch The Other Kids

Doing Stuff,

Stuff I Didn't

Dare Try.

I Didn't

Feel Deprived.

I Had Art Classes,

Computers,

But I'd Think

About It,

What It

Would Be Like.

[Coughs]

[Meow]

Aaaaah!

[Meow]

Ben:
Sydney?

Are You All Right?

Yeah. It Was Just A Cat.

[Sighs]

You Be Careful.

We Don't Know What

We Might Find Here.

Look At This Place.

Oh, These Fabrics.

1940S.

The Stitching--

Oh, No. No, No, No.

We Made A Deal,

Remember?

Ben...

Nothing Comes Back

With Us.

You Agreed.

Yeah, Under Duress,

Before I Saw

What Was Here.

Sydney, Wouldn't This

Be Great In Your Room?

Wouldn't You Love It?

Hello.

Oh, Hello.

I Kolo Mai.

I'm Sorry I'm Late.

I Had To Stop By

The Beach.

The Waves Were

Coming In So Pretty.

Anyway, Aloha

[Speaking Hawaiian]

You Must Be Sydney.

[Speaking Hawaiian]

Welcome.

Uh, Bo Kauihou.

We Spoke

On The Telephone.

Oh, Right,

Of Course.

I--I Was

Expecting...

3-Piece Suit?

Well, I'm Afraid

We Do Things

A Lot More Casual

Out Here.

The Will Is Very Clear.

As Ms. Leilani's

Sister's Granddaughter,

Sydney Is The Last

Remaining Heir,

The End Of The Line.

So It All Goes To Her.

Makai,

The Whole Place.

Providing She Comes In Person

To Take Possession,

Which She Obviously Has.

And That She Stays 2 Weeks.

2 Weeks?

Those Are The Conditions.

But--

But The Makai Kuau,

They Have Been Ranching

Here For 5 Generations.

Pineapple,

Sugarcane, Cattle.

The Place Has Gotten

Run Down These Past Years,

But The Land,

It Is Still Fertile.

It Could Come Back.

Working Plantation?

You Got To Be Kidding.

This Is Beachfront Property.

There Are Still Value

In The Old Ways.

Yes, But We Got

To Be Practical.

We're Not Exactly Farmers.

Suppose We Bring In A Crew.

Cleaned It Up, Painted It.

You Think We Could

Find A Buyer?

There Have Been

Some Inquiries.

Really?

Already?

What Kind

Of Inquiries?

Look, You've

Got To See This.

What Is It?

The Whole Family,

I Think.

[Sighs]

These Are Old.

Wow.

Yeah.

They Seem

So Far Away.

Dad?

Is It Her?

Is That Mom?

I Never Saw A Picture

Of Her Like That.

Did She Surf?

She Was So Beautiful.

[Thunder]

[Buzzing]

[Meow]

[Meow]

[Meow]

[Meow]

[Hoo Hoo Hoo]

[Clicks Tongue]

Here, Kitty,

Kitty, Kitty.

[Clicks Tongue]

Here, Kitty, Kitty.

[Cat Meows]

[Cat Meows]

[Hoo Hoo Hoo]

Oh, My Gosh!

Look Out!

Are You Ok?

I Didn't See You.

Ho, You're Flying

At Mach 10.

What'd You Do,

See A Ghost

Or Something?

You're Lucky

I Didn't--

Whoa, Sick Board.

Well, It's Pretty Cool,

I Guess.

It's Insane.

Hey, How's It Ride?

I Bet It's Awesome,

Huh?

Well...

It's Like, You Know.

Sweet.

Definitely.

I'm Gia.

Sydney.

Wait A Second.

You're The Long Lost

Relative, Yeah?

I Mean, The Whole

Weird Trip About

Leilani's Will.

How'd You Hear

About That?

This Is The Islands,

Sistah.

News Travels Fast

Around Here.

Wow. I'm So Not Good

With Computers.

I Can't Believe

You Can Do All This.

It's Not That

Hard, Really.

These Are Awesome.

You're Really Good.

You Ever Shoot

In The Water?

You Know, Up Close?

Well, That's When

You Get The Full-On

Drama Shots.

You Know,

Inside The Curl?

The Board Flying

Right At You.

Putting It

All On The Line.

It Sounds Wild.

Yeah!

Like Riding The Big Ones,

Deep Thud Pounding

Your Eardrums,

Your Heart

Beating So Fast--

Well, It's The Best.

I Was Thinking

Maybe We Could Hike

Into Kaala Loa Valley

Tomorrow,

Maybe Get Some

Rocks To Take Home.

Sound Good?

Or There's An Exhibit

At The School--

Handmade Quilts.

Could Be Fabulous.

Sydney?

Oh, Sorry.

Um, About Tomorrow?

I Was Actually

Thinking About

Going To The Beach.

The Beach?

Sure. Um,

That Sounds Good,

Doesn't It, Ben?

A Picnic. I Could Get Us

Some Sandwiches--

No, I Mean, Just Me.

See, I Met This Girl.

Her Name's--

I Don't Want You

Going Down There,

Sydney,

Not To The Beach.

It's Hawaii, Dad.

That's Where Kids Go.

They Go All The Time.

Not Alone.

I Won't Be Alone.

Gia's Going

With Her Friends.

We'll All Be Together.

We Don't Even

Know These Kids.

I'll Be Careful, Dad.

I Promise.

No. I'm Sorry.

Honey, It's Just

Not A Good Idea.

That Is So Unfair.

You're Treating Me

Like I'm A Baby. I'm 13.

She Said She'd

Be Careful, Ben.

She Knows What She's

Capable Of. Trust Her.

Does She Know

About Undertows?

About Riptides?

Does She Know

How These Currents

Can Just Come

Whipping Up

Out Of Nowhere?

Ok. Ok, Just

Take It Easy.

What If I Don't Even

Go In The Water?

What If I Just

Take Pictures?

Would That Be Ok?

Dad?

Please?

Ben?

Elizabeth:
Have Fun.

Bye.

Hello There.

Hi.

Sydney...

You Have The Cell

Phone, Right?

If You Need Us?

Got It.

You Know The Number?

Dad.

What If She's Not

There, This Girl?

She'll Be There.

But If She's Not?

I'll Come Back.

Right Back.

Hello There.

Aloha.

This Is Ben

And Elizabeth.

Hi.

Hi, Ben.

Hi, Nice To See You.

Ok.

Bo:
Uh, These

Are The Realtors

I Told You About.

Whooooo!

Hey!

Hey!

Who's The Grom?

You Know Her?

She's The One

I Told You About.

Oh.

Hey, You Made It.

Yeah, I Made It.

It's So Good Out There.

Head-High Waves.

Perfect Rights. Come On.

You Know, I Think

I'll Just, Like,

Hang A Little Bit.

You Know, Cruise.

Ok, Sure, Whatever.

Ok.

Wow, What A Great

Beach House.

Yeah, We Put It Together

From Things We Found

On The Beach.

Cool.

Uh-Huh.

Ooh! Good Way

To Lose A Fin.

If You Don't Trip

Or Fall Right Down

All Your Favorite Bands

Are All Sold Out

Hey.

Hi.

This Is Lanea...

Hi.

And Mele.

Hi.

Hi.

Sydney, Right?

Yeah.

You From The Mainland?

Chicago.

Oh, That's Where

The Wind Surfing

Goes Off, Yeah?

Well, The Wind Blows

Pretty Hard Off

The Lake, But I Never--

Your Board Is Awesome.

Pretty Old School.

Didn't I Tell You?

Isn't It Seriously

Outrageous?

Boy:
Hey, Girls!

Hey!

Hey!

Hey, What's Up?

What's Going On?

Hey, Let's Go Surf.

Come On,

Let's Go Surfing.

All Right.

Please Come

To The Show Tonight

I Promise Everything's

Gonna Be All Right

This Is So Pathetic.

Stuck In Dry Dock.

I Can't Believe It.

The Worst.

Except You Get

To Hang With Us.

When's It Come Off?

Uh, Not Soon Enough.
