Attempting to serve court papers, Magnum witnesses a hit. Also a witness is Alealea, a native Hawaiian girl. Magnum saves Alealea from being killed by the hit man and is wounded in the getaway. Blacking out, Magnum later awakes on a rustic island inhabited by native Hawaiians. Magnum can't remember how or why he is on the island beyond a few details, including a girl. Strangely, no one acknowledges the existence of the girl, nor will they tell him where he is. Gradually his memory returns, and Magnum comes to realize he is on Kapu, an island forbidden to outsiders, home to native Hawaiians who shun the modern world. Magnum discovers Alealea on the island, and realizes her life is still in danger. But the islanders are determined to return Magnum as soon as possible, despite his fear it won't be long before the islanders' paradise is shattered by those looking to eliminate all witnesses to the murder.
