The setting takes place in Maui, Hawaii in the year 2053.
Kalani Nalani is 19 years old living w ith his one younger sibling and his single mom. At the age of 5, his father died of a heart attack.
It begins in a small part of Maui where the people decided to spray for bees. Bees had been a problem in the area for several years. When people found out there was a place to live without the chance of getting stung, people rapidly started moving there. With more and more people moving there, more chemicals where sprayed throughout Maui till all of Maui was sprayed. Kalani realizes if there are no bees there is nothing to polinate the flowers and food. Food starts to run out and prices rise.
Kalani decides to take a stand to bring back bees and starts a petition and organization on the importance of bees. He does public speaking and fundraisers all dedicated to brining the bees back
People realize they are losing money and food and decide to bring back the bees or move.
The result of all the people taking a stand led to bees being imported back to Maui through a plane and flowers and food start to blossom.
