More Detail:

ALOHA WITH LOVE is a romantic drama on UPtv about a big city architect who flies to Hawaii after her aunt’s sudden death, but encounters romantic and family problems when her ex-boyfriend causes problems with the renovation of her aunt’s house and her blossoming relationship with the male contractor she hired to help her. ALOHA WITH LOVE has excellent performances throughout and a strong pro-family, redemptive worldview that stresses the importance of love, family legacy, forgiveness, caring for one another, and praying to God.

Gemma is a skilled architect who works with her boyfriend. Her boyfriend is ambitious but often treats their relationship more like a business. At the pitch of a lifetime, Gemma shares her opinion that is different from what the company wants. Instead of supporting her artistic expertise, Gemma’s boyfriend dismisses her opinion.

Gemma decides to break things off with her boyfriend. However, matters are made even worse when Gemma learns that her Auntie Lani passed away just hours after they had talked on the phone. Gemma decides to fly back to Hawaii and spend time with her father and sister.

When she arrives in Hawaii, Gemma learns that Aunt Lani gave both the family house and the surrounding land to Gemma and her sister, Sarah. Lani says specifically that, if the two sisters want to sell the house, Gemma must oversee the renovations herself. Gemma agrees to renovate the house, with the help of a contractor named Ben.

As it turns out, Ben and Gemma went to the same high school. However, their old acquaintance doesn’t save them from their disagreements over what should be done with the house. When Ben suggests they preserve Lani’s legacy, Gemma fires him.

At Lani’s memorial service, Gemma’s father encourages her to rehire Ben and bring the house back to life. Gemma still believes she wants to sell the house but agrees to work with Ben throughout the renovation process. The two become a strong team and begin to fall in love with one another. The house is almost complete when Sarah tells Gemma shocking news.

Gemma wants to keep her family’s wishes a priority. However, when her old boyfriend gets involved with her aunt’s property, she’s faced with a difficult decision. Gemma must decide what is most important, embracing the legacy of her loving family or financial stability for the future.
