Christopher Kulikowski, who now often works under his own banner Rara Avis Films, the sole survivor of a shipwreck washes onto a shore in the extreme north of the British Isles.
The survivor, Victor, has a dark past that crosses into the surreal and paranormal, making the situation not exactly a rescue. Despite the menacing cliffs and frequent storms of the island, a sinister reversal is at work whereby the struggling castaway himself is more frightening than the imposing land he faces.
This is scary stuff. Director Kulikowski's production values are top-notch, and if this short film doesn't invite a few nightmares after a screening, then nothing on the silver screen will because it is macabre and very disturbing.
