Description:

A bickering couple (Alan Rickman and Polly Walker) drive fast through a downpour to catch the last ferry to their island retreat. In a flash, they recognize a crumpled body laying at the side of the road after much argument they stop, only to find a young boy (Norman Reedus) battered and bruised. An offer of summoning the police firmly rejected, the two help the boy as best they can although it certainly means missing the ferry...and so starts this thriller: a tale of twisted sexual attraction and ulterior motives. (Anonymous & Amazon.com)

As David (Alan Rickman) and Alexis Weinberg (Polly Walker) race through a torrential rainstorm to get the last ferry to their private island, they catch sight of an injured young man (Norman Reedus) at the side of the road. The mysterious stranger reluctantly accepts their help and by morning the incident is virtually forgotten, until a series of coincidences leads him back into their lives and into their home. As events slowly unfold at the isolated retreat, what began as an act of kindness slowly gives way to a bizarre love triangle that ultimately forces the couple into a frightening spiral of sex and betrayal, where nothing is what it seems.
