Anna wakes pregnant and unable to remember her loving husband James, or Helen and her husband Peter who help nurse her back to health on a remote island. She soon discovers that they are all on the island to escape a powerful infection that has decimated the mainland population. Now, unsure about everything she’s being told, she searches the island and uncovers a terrible reality. To save herself and her unborn child she must form an uncomfortable bond with one of her captors to escape the island. A timely film that asks the big existential question of whether man could replace God after destroying humanity by over meddling with nature.
