Kristoffer Nyholm is a past master of stylish suspense having directed TV series The Killing and Taboo. Now, he turns his talent to the eerie true events known as the Flannan Isle mystery. Thomas (Peter Mullan), James (Gerard Butler) and Donald (Connor Swindells) are three lighthouse keepers who arrive on an uninhabited island 20 miles off the Scottish coast. It is the start of a six week shift that is anything but routine as they make a discovery that provokes greed, fear, paranoia and a vicious fight for survival. What lies at the heart of the mystery could be the root of all evil...
