Brief synopsis

A young couple arrives on a small island in Bulgaria with the intention to spend a few days away from the noise of the big city. Only few people live on this tiny rocky piece of earth - Irina and Pavel, a couple in their fifties, the lighthouse guardian and four workers repairing the roof of a building. Days are terrible hot, sun, the sea… but slowly all this idilic reality is changed. Strange things start to happen …
