A group of people gather for a family reunion in a house on an isolated island. They are waiting for the last person to join them, but as the evening comes and he doesn’t arrive, a strange anxiety overwhelms them. The group dismantles and the family members wander away from the house separately, confronting the sea and an unspoken fear that slowly consumes them.
