Madison (Mary-Kate) and Alex Stewart (Ashley) are twin sisters from
Illinoiswho are whisked away to Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island, Bahamasby their parents for winter break. Initially, the sisters are disappointed that they didn't get to go to Hawaiiwith their friends, but overcome it by enjoying their newly-earned freedom in the form of their own suite, as well as the pristine beaches of the Caribbean. Alex falls for "hottie" Jordan, a worker at the resort. She's not the only one with her eye on Jordan – the spoiled heiressBrianna is also after him, and plays dirty to get her way. Madison, meanwhile, is being wooed by cute but brainless Scott, who in turn is being coached behind the scenes by Griffen, a childhood friend of Madison's with a not-so-subtle crush. The sisters' holiday of fun in the sun is interrupted when they cross paths with a man smuggling stolen artifacts. Though their parents are keeping a close eye on them, the sisters and Griffen must find a way to clear Jordan's name when their friend is wrongfully arrested for the crime. Together, they overcome everything and understand the true meaning of sisterhood.
