Josh, Tank, and Josh’s father save a girl from drowning during a Hawaiian storm. The rescued girl turns out to be Melanie, a trouble-maker who had cheated Josh out of an award when they still lived on the mainland. She hasn’t changed, and again makes life miserable for Josh in Hawaii.
Then Melanie is kidnapped by a radical group threatening to sacrifice her and explode a small nuclear bomb in Honolulu in an effort to drive all non-natives out of the islands. In spite of how Melanie has mistreated Josh, he and Tank join authorities in the search to save her and prevent the bomb from being set off. Racing the clock, Josh and friends follow clues to a sacred waterfall hidden in a remote jungle area. Will they be able to accomplish their mission before it’s too late?
