Meroe Island seems like the perfect destination for a group of Gen Z’ers looking to go off the grid and unplug. Sun, sand, clear blue water, and a jungle to explore are beckoning these intrepid travelers. The island’s history of shipwrecks, starvation, and desperation only make the trip more enticing. For these six tourists, however, a remote island paradise is anything but idyllic as they begin to question each other’s motives when someone disappears and another winds up dead. Every one is a suspect and one of them has more to lose that anyone else. They are all keeping secrets, but whose secrets might get them killed before they get off of the island?
