It is the spring of 1977, and a bloated, disillusioned Elvis stands at the crossroads. To continue down the path he is on means certain death. However, a bizarre encounter with a mysterious woman offers him another alternative. With her help, he fakes his death and goes into solitary exile in the South Pacific with a new face and a new identity.
Now, twenty-seven years later, the king returns.
Lured back by memories of a lost romance that took place during the filming of one of his forgettable early sixties films, Elvis finds himself back on Hawaii's Big Island. Incognito, he settles in the tiny, remote fishing village of Malea where he meets the town kahuna, O'e, and his family.
But all is not well in paradise.
Three village teenagers go missing. O'e and Elvis teem up to try to find them. What they discover is that an ancient evil has taken root near the village which threatens not only the island but the future of all humankind.
Compelled to help in whatever way he can, Elvis must risk his cherished anonymity in a desperate
bid to thwart a formidable, virtually indestructible opponent…
