Nani has been the one raising her younger sister Lilo and is in constant fear of the social worker taking her away after he has raised concerns of her ability to take care of Lilo. Meanwhile, Doctor Jumba Jookiba is facing charges for illegal experiments, specifically experiment 626 also known Stitch, and while on trial the 626, escapes and crashes on a small island in Hawaii.
