ABOUT THE FILM
Following a devastating loss, Nadine (Dree Hemingway, ‘Starlet’) and Lewis (Lakeith Stanfield, ‘Atlanta’) retreat to a small Bahamian island where Nadine's family has kept a house for many years. As they try to heal and move forward with their relationship, the community on the island shows signs of unraveling -- with the island's mayor, Roy (Robert Wisdom, ‘The Wire’), squaring off against Doughboy (Leonard Earl Howze, 'Kevin Can Wait'), a human trafficker who manipulates the impressionable homeless teenager Myron (Sam Dillon, 'Boyhood') into assisting with his smuggling operation. Director Logan Sandler keeps an impressively keen grip on the tone of his debut feature, which is suspenseful and poignant in equal measures, all the while maintaining a sharp focus on the small details of everyday life in the Bahamas.
