Their Song Will Haunt You…

Mythological folk thriller, The Isle, is set on a remote island off the west coast of Scotland in 1846.

When a heavy storm hits causing a ship to sink, three survivors row through a thick, early morning mist, lost and disorientated. The fog begins to clear and The Isle appears before them. They soon discover that it is almost abandoned except for its four sole residents; an old harbourman, a farmer, his niece and a wild woman.

Once rested and fully recovered the sailors are desperate to leave and return to the mainland, but the promised boat never appears. One of them starts to investigate and learns of a tragedy at sea that occurred five years previously causing several young men from the island to perish.

When his two shipmates meet with fatal accidents, the myth of a ghostly siren haunting the island leads him to uncover the truth while he battles to save his own life.
