The film depicts a tale of three families on a remote island. A foreign couple who end up staying at an old inn where nobody speaks English; a man comes back to the island to abduct his own son despite being a fugitive on the run; and a stepfather and his stepdaughter who have been left behind by the wife who took off with her lover.
