True love, tragedy, myths, and second chances...
In ancient Hawaii, a young princess and a commoner fall in love. Although they are forbidden from each other, the young lovers believe they have the blessings of the gods and work to find a way to be together. But their love ends tragically, setting off the myth of the naupaka flower, a symbol of their love.
Centuries later, Liz gets the opportunity of a lifetime to move to Hawaii and she takes it without a second thought. Hoping for a fresh start, Liz settles in to island life with new friends and new adventures. But when she learns of the naupaka myth she starts to have recurring feelings of Deja vu and vivid dreams of what seems to be a prior life. And after meeting a man she feel intensely drawn to she begins to question everything she knows.
Liz can't help but wonder, is she doomed to a similar fate as the ancient lovers she feels so connected to? Or can she break free of the curse she has always felt trapped under and finally find peace?
