Now, Kim has returned to visit and finds Genie (Kristy Wu) dating a Black DJ (Anthony "Treach" Criss), which goes against Chinese tradition.

This disappointing sequel to "Hawaii" is also based on James Michener's novel, but it pales in comparison to the entertaining original film. This film's story picks up where the original left off and continues into contemporary times.
