Koh Timura returns home to Honolulu for the holidays. It's the first time he's celebrated Christmas since his mother's death years earlier. But unemployment and dealing with his stubborn dad and his extremely young stepmother doesn't make Koh feel especially merry and bright. His Japanese-born father is a traditionalist who likes to celebrate with the old country ways of doing things—fried chicken on the table and Santa-San bringing gifts to all.
But Koh soon learns that everybody deals with pain and loss in different ways. As he adjusts to being back in the islands, he encounters Adam Takagawa, the guy he loved all through high school. Will their passion flare again? Can some things broken really be fixed? Is sad and lonely Koh due a Christmas miracle after all?
