Thriller

Driven by an overzealous sense of adventure, young sailor Emily (Julia Goldani Telles), quickly runs into trouble when she shipwrecks on a remote island off the coast of South America. She’s rescued by the island's lone inhabitant, Demián Bichir’s mysterious light keeper Ismael. With communications down due to incredibly stormy conditions, they try to work together to ensure each other’s survival, but tension grows once Emily begins to question Ismael’s lack of answers and the bizarre occurrences they encounter as time passes. 

Directed with gripping fashion by Roxy Shih, the stage is set for a nail-biting journey into the depths of human instinct necessary for survival. Telles and Bichir bring incredible levels of pathos into their characters while also channeling the primal fear of strangers, unknown settings and questions of trust as the audience dances on the very knife's edge that Emily does in wrangling with her fraying psyche.––Casey Baron
