Suspenseless thriller which leaves its cast stranded Discuss this article
After a distressing miscarriage, journalist Kate (Newton) and her architect husband Martin (Murphy) return to a remote island where they once spent an idyllic holiday to try to save their marriage. But a dodgy generator, a broken CB radio and the unexpected arrival of injured soldier Jack (Bell), who rants about a fatal airborne virus and a global pandemic, expose the couple’s vulnerabilities, pitting them against the interloper and each other.
