Harry and Beth wanted a different kind of holiday. So they chartered a boat to drop them off on a remote coral island on the Great Barrier Reef – paradise? The island was idyllic – surrounded by a wide reef, covered in palms and full of birds and other wildlife. It was small – and totally deserted.
Or was it?
After snorkelling, making out and having fun, the young lovers soon come to believe that there is someone else on the island. Things go missing from their camp – and then they discover someone else’s footprints in the sand. At first amused, this becomes disturbing as they realize the island has a ghost!

- There's currently no US distribution.
- Filmed in July and August of '09 at the Masthead Island on the southern end of Australia's Great Barrier Reef. The island itself is deserted, without power, water or communications. To make matters worse, the film crew had to abide by strict environmental guidelines that denied them the use of power generators, forcing them to come up with other means to power the equipment.
- Said to be inspired by actual events, where in the mid-70's writer/director Bill Bennett visited a similar island about 20 kms from where the movie was shot and discovered an abandoned shack that contained a journal detailing visitor encounters with the ghost of a girl that's buried in a nearby grave.
