Overview

Nadine (Dree Hemingway, While We’re Young) returns with Lewis (Keith Stanfield, Straight Outta Compton) to her childhood getaway in the Bahamas to find solace following the death of their baby. But as the young couple tries to pull themselves together, the small island they’ve turned to for sanctuary seems to be falling apart: its mayor, Roy (Robert Wisdom, The Wire), is struggling to maintain order in the face of emerging chaos. When boats turn up stolen, the island’s dark secrets begin to come to light.

Shooting on Bimini and Staniel Cay, first-time feature director Logan Sandler filmed this dramatic thriller in black and white to bring the stark realities of the setting, rather than its lush beauty, into focus.
