The Descendants follows the unpredictable journey of an American family at a crossroads. Family man Matt King (George Clooney) must re-examine his past and navigate his future when his wife is in a boating accident off Waikiki. He awkwardly attempts to repair his relationship with his daughters - eerily precocious 10 year-old Scottie and rebellious 17 year-old Alexandra - while at the same time wrestling with a decision to sell his family's land, some of the last priceless virgin parcels of tropical beach, handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries.
When Alexandra drops the bombshell that her mother was in the midst of a romantic fling at the time of the accident, Matt has to take a whole new look at his life, not to mention his legacy, during a week of momentous decisions. With his girls in tow, Matt embarks on a haphazard search for his wife's lover. Along the way, in encounters alternately funny, troublesome and transcendent, he realizes he's finally on course toward rebuilding his life and family.
