When struggling real-estate agent Gary Vasisi (Thomson) is called back to his homeland in the Pacific, he’s handed a great opportunity - the chance to take his dying father’s crown and become Chief of an island that is rapidly sinking into the ocean. With a treasury and a tropical paradise to his name, Gary hopes to give his girlfriend Chloe (Megan Stevenson) the wedding she wants and finally attain the success he's yearned for. Even if it is at the expense of his people.

GARY more or less comes right in the last hour. It never really coalesces into anything you could call a coherent story. But the individual moments and scenes that make up the brief running-time are occasionally very funny.
