Cynthia is twenty-one, bored, and desperately waiting for something big to happen. Her striking fitness instructor, Anahera, is ready to throw in the towel on her job and marriage.
With stolen money and a dog in tow they run away and buy ‘Baby’, an old boat docked in a beautiful bay. But strange events on an empty island turn their life together in a different direction.
